A series of presentations about Science Communication, part of the ESOF16 event.

On 29 November 2016, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) celebrated their 20th anniversary. On this occasion, some MSCA fellows and alumni delivered lively presentations on their research projects or outreach activities.
