"JCOM Masterclasses" is a joint project of the main scientific institutions based in Trieste, a centre of excellence for science, science communication programmes and the related training activities. 


  1. Improve the communication skills of the scientists of the Trieste science system and the related institutions operating abroad;
  2. Promote the professional growth of professionals involved in science communication projects, such as architects, designers and museum curators and educators, etc.;
  3. Facilitate relationships and promote collaborations among all different actors of the public engagement in science  and technology;
  4. Promote the Journal of the Science Communicaton (jcom.sissa .it) as a platform for the dialogue between scientists, science communication scholars and professionals;
  5. Promote the image of the Trieste science system also among the science communication  international  community.

The JCOM Masterclasses not only present tested methodologies and accepted standards in the various fields of the communication of science, but give participants the opportunity to get to know new and innovative practices and approaches for the public engagement in science and technology.

Case studies from all around the world will give participants food for thought and offer a variety of examples to match the variety of contexts from which they are coming.

Participants will be selected among applicants who are leader in their community or in any case are in the position to influence institutions and organizations, so that they may not only design but also perform innovative and effective projects for the public engagement in science and technology and promote the professional growth of colleagues and collaborators.
