While there are a number of forums  at which  science  communicators and researchers at all levels can network and exchange information, there are some issues that are peculiar to communicators at the early stages in their career   - confidence building, professional development and careers advice for instance.   In order to address these issues, we have recently set up the Young Science Communicator's Network.

The  network  aims  to  offer  support  to  professional  science  communicators  in  the  early parts  of  their  careers,  by  providing  professional  training  sessions,  peer  level  careers support,  discussion  fo  rums  as  well  as  informal  networking  and  ideas  exchange opportunities.   We also aim to make a significant contribution to the professionalisation of  the  field,  helping  to  establish  an  effective  career  structure  and  making  Science Communication a recognised and viable career option.

While there are a number of forums  at which  science  communicators and researchers at all levels can network and exchange information, there are some issues that are peculiar to communicators at the early stages in their career   - confidence building, professional development and careers advice for instance.   In order to address these issues, we have recently set up the Young Science Communicator's Network.

The  network  aims  to  offer  support  to  professional  science  communicators  in  the  early parts  of  their  careers,  by  providing  professional  training  sessions,  peer  level  careers support,  discussion  fo  rums  as  well  as  informal  networking  and  ideas  exchange opportunities.   We also aim to make a significant contribution to the professionalisation of  the  field,  helping  to  establish  an  effective  career  structure  and  making  Science Communication a recognised and viable career option.
