Seequent has partnered with RFG2018 to create the Data Speaks! Competition, as part of the Resources for Future Generation conference in Vancouver this June. Students are invited to share their research with a non-specialist audience, and win up to $1,500.
The students of today will be the influencers of tomorrow. They will be the ones who develop new approaches for resource extraction, water security and social equity. They will also be the ones who create consensus and shared understanding among a variety of audiences, including non-specialists. The ability to communicate research and data to these audiences is key in influencing future changes, which is why it’s vital to help students learn the science of communication now.
The competition is being run as part of the RFG2018 conference, which is happening June 16-21 in Vancouver.
