Postdocs Talking – from Research to Society
How do we as academic researchers ensure that our research actually reaches, and thereby benefits, society and its people?

The podcast series ‘Postdocs Talking – from Research to Society’ focuses on how academic researchers can build bridges between science and several important sectors of society: language when engaging people with diabetes, funding for research, innovation and its relation to industry, policy-making, education and social media, and art in scientific representation.

Listen as motivated postdocs and experts discuss the challenges and solutions within each topic.

‘Postdocs Talking – from Research to Society’ is a podcast born at the 2021 Danish Diabetes Academy Winter School for Postdocs. Listen to the podcasts below.
