The National Institute for Science Communication (NaWik) is a non-profit company, established in 2012. NaWik stakeholders are the Klaus Tschira Foundation and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, KIT.

Science is an important part of our culture and scientific findings influence the future development of society. The vision of NaWik is to improve the information flow from academic research to the public with the goal of a more scientifically literate society. For that purpose, the NaWik trains scientists to communicate their intentions, findings and issues to a wider audience and engage with society for a dialog.

NaWik seminars are one or two day long attendance courses. Participants work in small groups with emphasis on hands-on-exercises and a high level of practical relevance. Experienced science journalists and communicators lead the seminars, either on-site at your institute or on our premises in Karlsruhe. In addition to our presence seminars, we offer workshops, talks and e-learning courses.
