NAMES is delighted to announce for the launch of a series of online activities for NAMES Members:

  • SciComm Mixer Webinars where NAMES Members will be invited to prepare and present a slideshow about a certain type of SciComm work; the first Mixer will be about “SciComm Summer Activities” and it will tentatively take place on Tuesday, 6 September.
  • SciComm Break Meetups are a light and quick informal online activity where a certain skill/activity is discussed in a brief session while attendees are having their lunch/coffee break; the first Break Meetup will tentatively take place on Tuesday, 13 September.
  • My SciComm Hero Webinars where a NAMES family member interviews their own SciComm Hero: a person who influenced their work in the field and encouraged the communicating of science to nonscientists in the MENA region specifically; the first Interview Webinar will tentatively take place on Tuesday, 27 September.
  • Members Thematic Meetups are meetings to discuss a technical topic among staff members interested to learn more about it. It is more of a discussion between attendees to exchange thoughts and ideas that could also enhance collaboration between members. Attendees could also discuss a certain problem they are facing to benefit from the group in the session. The Next Meetup will tentatively take place on Tuesday, 11 October.
