Communicating Scientists: Challenges, Competencies, Context (fourC)

fourC Logo

Our aim is to unite research and practice on “communicating scientists”. We will investigate researchers’ roles and institutional contexts in science communication and their public engagement. One central aim of our JRG is to develop and implement an evidence-based training for early career scientists to become effective communicators of science in general and their research specifically.

To achieve our aims in research and practice, the fourC team unites expertise from psychology and communication science. The JRG fourC was established by the TU Braunschweig following an application of Prof. Dr. Monika Taddicken (Institute for Communication Science) and Prof. Dr. Barbara Thies (Institute of Educational Psychology) as one of seven JRG funded in the context of the German Excellence Strategy.

The Junior Research Group is led by Dr. Friederike Hendriks. The two doctoral researchers are Lennart Banse and Julian Fick, Anna Borgwardt and Luca Rodolph have joined our JRG as student assistants.
