Imperial College London partners with Poland to explore science communication

Imperial is to collaborate with four leading universities in Poland to improve science communication, and to build better bridges between scientific researchers, especially in areas such as climate change and pandemics.

The collaboration was launched at a virtual event this week, attended by leaders and academics from Imperial and its partners – the Adam Mickiewicz University, The Jagiellonian University, Medical University of Gdansk and Warsaw University of Technology.

The Polish perspective
Also speaking at the virtual event was Professor Bogumila Kaniewska, Rector of Adam Mickiewicz University, who emphasised that science communication requires a ‘diverse set of skills and team effort’. She noted that the collaboration involves university staff from science, social science and humanities faculties – also integrating outreach and graduate training.

Thanking the guests at the end of the ceremony, Dr Webster discussed the future of the collaboration. He pointed out that post-Brexit, Imperial aims to strengthen its links with Europe, and science communication is a natural way of bringing scientists together.
