Universitat Rovira i Virgili

Course on Communication for the Research Community

I have published a scientific article... Will it be featured in the media?

In the theoretical and practical course Communication for the Research Community, scheduled as a PROFID training activity, you will learn how journalists work, how you should prepare for and respond to interviews, how you can improve your communication skills, and how the Science Communication and Outreach Unit of URV operates as well as the impact of social media and multimedia resources.

Not all articles are journalistically viable, nor do they all have the same potential to succeed in the media. However, this course provides you everything you need effectively communicate the content of your research to the audience.


To understand the key factors in achieving greater and better dissemination of research.

To improve communication skills.

To recognize the importance of social media and the 2.0 culture.


Target audience

The course is for all URV teaching and research staff (PDI) and doctoral students.


The course will be taught entirely in Catalan.


Participants who attend 80% of the course and complete the activities will receive a certificate of attendance and achievement.
