Science in the context of the Bernstein Network not only represents cutting-edge research, it also touches upon current public debates. In turn communication of scientific content and public relations are closely intertwined. Communication is thus important on several levels – internally as well as externally.
This is the basis upon which the network’s various communicative formats have evolved: our electronic newsletter – the Bernstein Bulletin, our own print products, the website as well as our social media representations.
- It is central to us to enhance the visibility of the excellent research and the diversity of topics in the Bernstein Network and making it accessible to a wider audience. Therefore, we present the research around computational neuroscience at public events, such as science fairs, science days or long nights of science.
- In this vein, we prepare scientific findings and publications separately in our press releases. In particular when it comes to establishing a link to everyday life, it is crucial to facilitating general access to the current state of research in neurological diseases or in the field of information and communication technologies.
- To get up close to the personalities of the network and their research, our print publications with scientists’ portraits, topical science reports and interviews are freely available on request.
- We actively reach out to our community through Twitter, LinkedIn and VIMEO and connect the topics of the Bernstein Network with other institutions and facilities.
