Web video training for students, researchers and science communicators *postponed*

You want to communicate about your research or your passion of science through a YouTube video? If you are motivated to learn how to produce your own science web video, join us for a thrilling two-day training. Organised by the FNR, in cooperation with Wissenschaft im Dialog and the Fast Forward Science contest, this workshop will give you all insights and tools on how to produce your own science web video. Update: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this training has been postponed from April to Autumn 2020 (exact date to follow).

*You may already register. We will contact any people who have registered once the new date is decided. You may then confirm your registration or withdraw if you are not able to participate. The programme is planned to remain as is.*

Your participation at this workshop will also allow you to participate in the Fast Forward Science contest and to publish your video on www.science.lu. We really encourage you to do so!

On the contest website, you can find previous submissions in the contest for inspiration.
