Panel discussion

Science Communication & Public Outreach Activities

April 2, 2019, 14.00, IAS Auditorium

The discussion brings together different stakeholders in a discussion on outreach activities to promote science. We want to encourage young researchers to promote their research outside their labs to a wider audience e.g. via social media, videos, talks, science slams and other outreach activities. In addition, we want to address the need to reflect on the role which researchers assume in the public/media. At TUM ForTe, we see that outreach activities are of growing importance for third party funding and need to be addressed in proposals.

The panel discussion thus intends to raise awareness of opportunities as well as challenges to engage in this field. We want to use the opportunity to hear from the audience about their outreach activities to exchange experience and inspire other researchers.

Confirmed Panelists:

  • Dr. Pablo Lanillos, MSCA Fellow at the Chair for Cognitive Systems (ICS), TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Prof. Dr. Matthias Nießner, Professor for Visual Computing, TUM Department of Informatics
  • Dr. Sarah Schönbauer, Postdoc, Science and Technology Policy at the Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS)
  • Andreas Schmidt, TUM Web Communications Team
  • Dr. Holger Finken, Head of Section Research Fellowship Programmes, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)

The discussion will be hosted by TUM ForTe (Dr. des. Neele Meyer). No registration required.


In addition to the fair, postdocs can take part in a series of workshops. Please find the programme and registration link here. The initial registration phase is already over. We will provide information about remaining seats for workshops soon.
