How to speak with media?

What does a journalist expect from me? How can I prepare for an interview? How can I present my results clearly and intelligibly and place them in a political, economic and social context? How do I deal with controversial issues? These questions will be faced during the course 'Communication: how to speak with media' that will take place on November 9-11, 2011 in Darmastadt (Germany).
This three-day media and communication training is organized by Cost Action FP0905, coordinated by Cnr-Plant Genetics Institute, and Genetics Modified Organism (Gmo) Safety and its aim is to teach participants the rules of media work and to prepare them to deal confidently with journalists.
People who research socially important subjects often find themselves in the spotlight sooner than they expect. The media are interested in competent sources, and scientists can play an important part in bringing objectivity to the public debate about plant genetic engineering.
The course is practice-oriented and includes filmed exercises. Participants will be taught by journalists and communication professionals and will receive individual feedback.
Deadline for application is 30th September 2011.
