Horizon CDT student, George Filip, who is in the 4th year of his PhD at the University of Nottingham has recently written a blog article, where he talks about how writing an article for The Conversation, led to international exposure and coverage of his research and expertise around Trust in Driverless Cars.
The Conversation is an independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public.
You can view the blog post here: https://georgefilipblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/01/public-engagement/, which also provides details on the process of submitting an article to The Conversation.
As George points out:
“Writing articles for the general public can lead not only to higher exposure, but also makes it easier to get in contact with researchers that are looking at similar things and even raise your profile in the field, which can in return lead to different opportunities”.
