Session 3: Findings through scientific research can be grand. In an academic environment, these high impact findings may not necessarily reach the public, even though it may directly affect this audience. Collaborating with large organisations, biotech companies, and the government may jump this hurdle. In this session, attendes will learn how to pitch outreach ideas to these organisations, and how to highlight benefits to that organisation in participating in translating scientific research that may not necessarily be a product of their institution.
