From June 2 to September 30, 2021, the #LuxembourgScienceCenter will present the science comics developed by doctoral students from the #UniversityOfLuxembourg
Visitors will have the opportunity to read the comics in different languages, leave their feedback and take a hard copy of the comics with them to share with friends and family. “LUX:plorations Vol. 1 – A Universe of Research"
The comics have been developed by 23 doctoral candidates from the University of Luxembourg together with professional comic artists from Luxembourg, and many more participants. The young scientists study different fields of science and research.
By using comics, they found an entertaining way to speak about research, show what scientists in Luxembourg actually do or how science is useful in everyday-life. This comic production was realized under the lead of the DESCOM project.
#DESCOM - Doctoral Education in Science Communication aims to support interactions between academia and the public by providing different modes of training in science communication. The production of the comics was supported by the Doctoral School in Science and Engineering (#DSSE), the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (#FSTM) and the Fonds National de la Recherche, Luxembourg (#FNR).
