The Faculty of Science (FoS) of the Charles University in Prague presented its new communication concept called SCIENTISTS in early November last year. The objective of this concept is to approach elementary and secondary school students & teachers, media, education industry experts, as well as the general public.
The Team mission is to shape a new breed of engineers leader in their relative fields and to represent the educational excellence of our university.
One of the Team's goals is to improve the Team visibility inside and outside our university, to do that we defined three communication targets: institutions, companies and students. To communicate with them the Team uses Prezi, Power Point presentations, audiovisual products and “elevator pitch” strategy in the interpersonal approach.
