Sonja Žakula, PhD, a research associate of the SASA Institute of Ethnography, the lead of the Open Doors Working Group of the SASA IE, attended a crash course, intended for doctoral and master`s students as well as for young researchers, “How to Communicate Modern Science?”, at the Centre for the Promotion of Science, in Belgrade, from December 15th to 17th.

During the three-day interdisciplinary course “How to Communicate Modern Science?” participants had an opportunity to learn how to put various forms of open communication in the context of today`s science and its importance for society. This year, out of about 200 applicants, 25 of them were selected, including the doctoral and master`s students from the field of medicine, biology, physics, meteorology, ethnomusicology, psychology, philology and other scientific disciplines. 

The knowledge gained at this course, whose last year’s alumni was Milan Tomašević, PhD, research associate of the SASA Institute of Ethnography, will be applied in shaping and better communicating not only the results, but also the process of the research work of the SASA IE associates to the public.
