Scientific writing and presentation skills training
A one-day training course on scientific writing and presentation skills was held in February 2020 in Belgrade, Serbia. In the morning, Professor Quarrie, from EUTA, gave 18 participants (PhD students, post-doctoral researchers to other early career academics), advice on preparing manuscripts based on Strength2Food research for submission to high-impact journals, and how to make an impact with project posters and oral presentations at conferences. The course covered: marketing strategy, different types of research papers, selecting a suitable journal, journal instructions for authors, preparing the abstract, recommendations for Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, data presentation, and how to improve the text and English writing skills.

The afternoon presentation covered important aspects to consider for posters, identifying the pros and cons of different poster styles, and how to put together and deliver an effective PowerPoint presentation at a scientific conference. All training material, videos and slides, is available to project partners in Basecamp.
