Knowledgeable Youth: Open Forum with Dr. Agata Zysiak


Together with Eurozine and Radio Orange, RECET is realizing its very first youth project: reaching out to (disadvantaged) youngsters living in Vienna and introducing them to the professional world of academic research and science communication.

In this workshop series, we are working with a group of Ukrainian youngsters who became refugees at the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion and who are going to school in Vienna. Participants learn the basics of how scientific research is done, how it is brought to paper in the form of academic texts and circulated in professional circles and within the general public. We discuss what motivates the youngsters to (learn how to) read academic texts and what discourages them from acessing scientific knowledge.

The youngsters who have read a publication by Dr. Agata Zysiak, will be meeting this researcher of the University of Vienna face-to-face and encountering him in a self-chosen format.  

Date: Monday, 18 December 2023
Time: 15:30 – 17:00
Venue: Meeting room 4.28, Kolingasse 14-16, 1090 Vienna
