Over 30 grants are available for university students, young researchers and educators to take part in a 10-day summer school on science communication at Rhine-Waal University, Germany, from July 13 to 22.

The summer school, called Steam, marries science and art in science communication. The programme covers aspects of theory and practice of journalism, arts, social media, management, policy and theatre. No previous experience is required.

The grants, funded by the Erasmusplus programme, cover the participation fee and travel and subsistence supplements. The closing date for applications is April 29 at noon. Science communicators, science journalists and established researchers wishing to take part against payment of a participation fee may apply by June 10.

The team organising the event, which is led by the University of Malta, includes the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations, France, Haaga-Helia University, Finland, Science View, Greece, the University of Edinburgh, UK, and Rhine-Waal University.
