Media training: the Swiss National Science Foundation also offers courses to communicate and promote research and science in general more effectively. These media courses are mainly aimed at scientists who already have some research experience as postdocs and are funded by the SNSF or its partners, the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) or the Mercator foundation Switzerland. But the offer is in principle open to all advanced researchers who wish to become more adept at dealing with the media. For more information, please go here.
