Starting an academic career can be difficult, as there are many factors to consider, in order to successfully disseminate your research and increase your visibility within the scientific community. Why is it important for young researchers to understand the basics of h-index, ORCiD and Google Scholar? Why can attending certain events like conferences or workshops be important and boost your career?

To help you navigate these different aspects, we have invited experts to share their own experiences and insights on how to become more visible as a researcher and successfully disseminate your science.

Part of being a successful scientist is communicating your research effectively to a wider audience. Social media provides an excellent platform for scientists to share their work, connect with other researchers and engage with the public. But which social media platforms is appropriate and how can they be used effectively?

During the second session, we will cover the key aspects of social media communication for scientists, including what you need to consider, what goes well, what can go wrong, including strategies for responding to negative feedback and managing your online reputation. We will also look at what you need to consider when using social media to communicate your research, including how to create compelling content, engage with your audience and grow your community of followers.

At the end of the session, you will also have the opportunity to network with other researchers and experts in the field.
