Academic writing to stand out

“How can I make sure my paper stands out from the others…?” Excellent research is fundamental. But so is sharing it effectively with the broader academic community! This seminar supports participants in learning how to structure their academic writing so as to stand out from the crowd by producing writing that is clear, engaging and persuasive. Through its unique one-to one session offered on the second day of the workshop, this can be achieved for academic articles but also for policy briefs, media editorials or funding applications.

This workshop will provide guidance and help you find out which path will lay a solid foundation for your future, both on a professional and personal level. A series of interactive exercises will give you a clear idea of where you are at and make it easier to define what options you have.
