In the past year or so, the importance of science communication has become clearer than ever, and the need for great science communication ever so stronger. Becaues of this, we’re especially glad that the competition The Scientist in Me was held again this year, although completely online.
Can you believe it? It’s been a year since we first greeted you on this blog, and what a year it’s been. We started this blog as a way to connect with our amazing alumni community, but also to reach out to the world and show it what we’ve got, trying to survive 2020. And survive, we did, with your help! Today, we’d like to take a quick look back on this past year and what we’ve built – together.
Do you have skills in software and data, health-related disciplines (including biosciences and medicine), policymaking, or business? Then don’t miss out on this awesome learning opportunity! For the second year in a row, we’re bringing you a scholarship for attending the summer session of Bumblekite Online – a 6-week cohort-based, learning and development programme on Healthcare Data and AI Policy. The application deadline is 13 June 2021, whereas the programme will be held from 24 July – 5 September 2021.

Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to join together the Summer School of Science and the Internet in matrimony. Due to current circumstances, which make it impossible to organize S3 in Požega like we used to, this year we are in dire need of evolution and adaptation. The School is coming back, but in a different format. In this post, we bring you a detailed description of how we envisioned this year’s Summer School (and what you need to do if you’d like to join).
For the majority of Croatian S3 alumni that are studying or working abroad, it has been a rather normal thing to meet up with friends in Zagreb during Christmas time. And of course, if some of your friends are also S3 alumni, the typical S3/S3++ Christmas reunion is a must! It’s always been an opportunity to meet new people and reunite with the old ones from over the past decade.
That was up until 2020, the year when everything changed, the year when doing social activities online became the new norm. So we thought, why not have our first virtual Christmas reunion?
It’s that amazing time of the year – holiday season! But before our team departs to a well-deserved break, let us look back on our choice of the top 10 things that happened in the S3 community in 2020.
Remember when we wrote about the finale of our science communication competition Znanstvenik u meni (The Scientist in Me)? Applications for high school students in Croatia are open until December 20th.
Believe it or not, we have been around for four months already, bringing you a variety of stories every Sunday. And although we have started out with certain topics and categories, our plan was never to stop there. In this News post, we bring you a look into our future prospects – new categories and new writers – by summarizing our past and current efforts.
As part of our short summer break, instead of bringing you a shiny new story, we want to share some information on our S3 alumni survey. So strap on your seatbelts and get ready for some stats!
Although we had to cancel the Summer School this year, we haven’t been slacking off. In fact, June was quite eventful for us here at EVO.
Besides launching this blog and our alumni newsletter, the finale of our science communication competition, Znanstvenik u meni, was held at Infinum HQ in Zagreb on the 13th of June. Interested?
