Poster Design Skills for Scientists, Researchers & Academics – A Practical Workshop
Poster Design Skills for Scientists, Researchers & Academics – A Practical Workshop

Our poster design skills workshop for scientists, researchers & academics is designed to help you learn how to design an engaging and visually appealing poster that will help you get your message across loud and clear.

Fees: €360 EARLYBIRD | €420 STANDARD

Dates and times: 9 and 11 Nov, 9:30am-11:30am & 2:30pm-4:40pm


Posters can be a powerful way to present your research, ideas, and findings at conferences and meetings, but designing a poster that is visually interesting and presenting it in a way that holds the attention of your audience can be tricky. That’s where our poster design and presentation workshop comes in.

In this four-part workshop, we’ll make sure that you know what needs to be on your poster, introduce you to tried and tested design rules and new thinking in poster design, how to use modern technology in your poster, how to adapt a poster to your audience, and how to present and discuss your poster orally – all in a way that helps you engage and connect with your audience.
