  • Outreach


An important academic activity is to ensure the high quality research and impact is disseminated to stakeholders such as schools, media and the general public. Staff and students at SBS engage in a wide range of outreach activities to facilitate dissemination. The primary method of releasing scientific information to society is through the publication of high quality research articles and through oral and poster presentations at conferences.

Kids at Science Fair 2016Both teaching and academic staff as well as students highlight their work and show their passion for biology through their teaching, at University Open Days, public lectures, science fairs, presentations at local cafés, organization of hands-on workshops and mentoring in local schools. We also engage with the media conveying our scientific and teaching mission and ideas in television, radio and newspapers.
