PROUT – public engagement course spring 2020


Would you like to learn to communicate your research effectively using storytelling techniques? Or would you like to develop a public engagement activity around your research for a family audience? In cooperation with PROUT, for the second time, the Utrecht University Public Engagement Program organises a public engagement course especially for PhD students in Utrecht. The course will start the first week of February 2020 and is open to PhD-students from all research subjects. Participants can choose between two tracks, an English-spoken (fully booked) and a Dutch-spoken one.


Do you want to apply for one of those tracks? Maximum number of participants for each track is 10, first come first served, so be sure to apply quickly by sending an email to Stephanie Helfferich at
