Science and communication trainings
Science and communication trainings tailored right for you
We play variations on international science and communication. All our trainings are related to either of these, or to both at the same time. They are designed so as to facilitate bridge-building: between people of different cultures, disciplines, languages, or simply backgrounds.
They may be adapted for ‘beginners’ (e.g. Master or Ph.D. students) or for more experienced professionals at different stages of their professional careers.
We aim at perfect fits: each training is customised to suit your particular needs and likings.

Communication trainings for scientists, medical doctors, science traders
Targeted at scientists of various disciplines, medical doctors, and related professionals, our family of practical communication workshops is designed to help you effectively communicate about your work, in different contexts and to different ends.
You may learn, e.g.:
· how to effectively communicate with non-specialists
· how to write good research papers
· how to write and talk about your Ph.D. project
· how to succeed a job interview by video conferencing
“At the beginning, I was quite puzzled by this course since at the first session I didn’t clearly see why we were doing those exercises. But at the third and last session I made the link with what we had said before. So I finally find the organisation of this course really clever!”
CPD trainings for scientific and medical translators
If you are a translator or an interpreter working with texts related to life sciences, medicine, or public health, and English is one of your working languages, you can benefit from our hands-on translator-oriented workshops on a variety of related topics, e.g.:
· viruses and emerging viral diseases
· clinical biomarkers
· cancer treatments
· molecular diagnostics
All courses include translation activities and extensive vocabulary considerations.
“An excellent course, perfectly geared towards medical translators with lots of practical exercises. Highly recommended!”
“For someone who knew very little about viruses, this course was amazingly clear”
Navigating cross-culture diversity in your professional environment
We offer highly customised workshops and coaching to help members of multinational teams, relocating professionals, and anybody interested in communicating with people of a different culture, communicate and collaborate across borders. You can learn, e.g.:
· how to make the best of cultural diversity in your team
· how to avoid cross-culture misunderstandings
· how to collaborate with Asians if you are a European
· how to communicate with the French if you are Chinese
“Very interesting classes. I have gained more concept of the French culture and its relationship to the Chinese culture”
OUR TRAINING PHILOSOPHY :
tailor-made, engaging, and practice-oriented workshops work best
Our trainings are highly interactive, hands-on and fun. The theory is reduced to the absolute minimum and taught through practice whenever possible rather than lectured, with an array of original specific activities conceived to suit the objectives and tailored to the needs and levels of each training group. To ensure such an engagement, whether in-person or online, we work with small groups. And we always take time to answer questions!
