Public Engagement

Public engagement and science communication activities are important in many different ways. They can, for example,

  • generate excitement and interest in science with the public,
  • help to keep up or improve acceptance for scientific research in the society, and
  • generate appreciation in the community for your profession and institution.

At the same time, skills gained by engaging in science communication activities can also serve the scientists themselves. Successfully explaining an aspect of science or technology will greatly enhance the own level of understanding.

MARUM encourages and actively supports Early Career Researchers in science communication activities and public engagement.

If you would like to get involved and communicate your science, please contact Ulrike Prange from the MARUM science communication team.
