The training was conducted by one of the world's top experts in research - media relations, Ruth Francis, Head of Press for Nature who had travelled from London.
The day long workshops consisted of sessions on the international media scene, writing research press releases, communicating controversial research, methods of communication and translating scientific information into everyday language. Among the case studies discussed were "Strategies for containing an emerging influenza epidemic in Southeast Asia" and "Giant tsunami risk in the northern Bay of Bengal".
