This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 955756.

Outreach activities

To reach out to society as a whole and to demonstrate how the EU funding contributes to tackling societal challenges, the InPharma project will organise a number of public engagement and communication events. The ESRs all contribute to the planned outreach activiites by developing concepts and plans, implementing the activities and also by evaluatting and reporting to ensure the widest possible outreach and impact.

Implemented outreach activities

InPharma in the media

Science slams

As part of InPharma’s outreach and open access strategy, the ESRs have each created a short science slam video to introduce themselves and their individual research projects within InPharma. The 13 science slams are available below or on our YouTube channel. Published 25.01.2022

Planned outreach activities

Ask Me Anything (AMA)

ESRs will set up an Ask Me Anything (AMA) via the sub-platform on Reddit. The AMA allows for anyone to ask the researchers any questions of interest to them and answers to be explained in an easy language to interested audiences.

Planned for Year 2022

Students-In-Pharma

ESRs will produce a series of short presentations to inform and encourage secondary school students (and teachers) about career opportunities in science and technology.

The Students-In-Pharma will  give ESRs the opportunity to present the projects, objectives and benefits of InPharma as well as introduce the students to the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

Planned for Year 2022-2024

InPharma Open

InPharma will reach out to the general public to increase interest in science through fun learning by joining several open local science-related events. Several public events are regularly run at In Pharma’s host institutions such as UCC’s Cork Discovers or NKUA’s Researchers Night.

Planned for Year 2023

InPharma on-the-job

To effectively communicate the project from the start, case studies based on the ESRs’ positions and their daily routine as a researcher at their industry institution will be developed for people interested in what a career in research and what this may look like.
