About the session:

The facilitated workshop is open to all ECR's whose research area links to the aims and objectives of the Supergen Energy Networks Hub.  The workshop will look at tips and techniques for pitching research to Industry and Academia, both internal and external to your research area.

Presenting your work to non-specialists

This session will focus on practical skills and advice that will help you develop your inter-personal and communication skills. These tips and techniques will particularly help engage young people and under-represented groups with your research, though many are also relevant when presenting to professional and academic audiences.
