In Focus: Science Communication

“You don’t really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother”. This quote is attributed to Albert Einstein and should be the motto of all professional science communicators.

Science communication should be part of a scientist's everyday life as communicating with society about science and its benefits is more important than ever. Scientists give talks, write papers and proposals, communicate with a variety of audiences, and educate others. Thus, to be successful scientists must learn how to communicate effectively. In other words, to be a successful scientist, they must be effective communicators and able to transmit their message clearly and concisely so that it is understood by an engaged audience. We might conclude that today, effective communicators can be considered better scientists.
