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.
