ComSciCon Canada & ComSciCon-CanWest

August 13th - 15th, 2021

ComSciCon is a series of workshops focused on enhancing communication skills and fostering an inclusive community that can effectively communicate scientific information to academic and non-academic audiences. Created in 2013 by graduate students at Harvard University and MIT, over 2000 graduate students have now benefited from learning the skills needed to communicate complex concepts within science, engineering and other technical fields to reach broader and more diverse audiences. ComSciCon has now come to Canada to empower the next generation of leaders in STEM fields across the country.


This year, ComSciCon Canada will be holding both a National Workshop (ComSciConCAN) and a Western Canada Workshop (ComSciCon-CanWest) in a virtual format from August 13th-15th, 2021. ComSciConCAN will provide training to graduate students with prior experience in science communication, while ComSciCon-CanWest will be designed for those at the beginning of their #SciComm journey. Applicants can choose which workshop(s) they are applying to in the application form, and each workshop will be completely free of charge for selected attendees.



The application deadline is April 25th, 2021.
