SISSA SCICOM Masterclasses - training for professionals on how to communicate science and technology

SISSA SCICOM Masterclasses stem from the long-lasting experience of SISSA and SISSA Medialab in training in science communication.


SISSA Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Advanced Studies (ILAS) has been running the Master’s course in science communication for the past 30 years, which trains new generations of science communicators working in different fields. Alongside with this activity, ILAS, in collaboration with SISSA Communications office, manages courses in science communication, at the national and international level, aimed at specific target groups, from young to senior researchers, from health to environmental operators.

SISSA Medialab is an in-house company of SISSA working in several fields of the communication of science, inside and outside the scientific community. Through events, projects and exhibitions, it works with different audiences, from children to adults, from schoolteachers to museum educators to entrepreneurs. It manages and produces several scientific journals, including JHEP, JCAP, JSTAT, JINST, PoS, JCOM e JCOM América Latina. Since its creation, it offers training courses, at a national and international level, for researchers and science communicator professionals, such as teachers, facilitators and museum operators.

SISSA SCICOM Masterclasses offer practical, interactive, in presence and online courses in science communication for professionals involved in the public engagement in science and technology. The programme provides scientists with skills that are crucial both in the private sectors and offers tools to facilitate the dialogue between the scientific community, citizens, companies and society at large. It also offers customised training opportunities for groups with special requests, such as institutions, departments, European projects, museums staff, companies, NGOs, public administrations, health operators, environmental operators and more. The courses can include a combination of basic or advanced modules from the courses in agenda and those listed below. They can be held online or at your own premises.
