Writing a Compelling lay summary



Writing a Compelling lay summary

* Our services are offered to University of Ottawa full-time professors (tenured or tenure-track) only.

Do you struggle with translating your research into plain language? Writing a compelling and concise lay summary has become an essential part of successful grant applications. Most funding agencies require a lay summary to inform the public and media of the nature of funded research projects. It is also one of the first sections read by grant application reviewers, making a case for the importance of the research at the outset.

This workshop will explore writing techniques and offer practical advice on crafting a clear and effective lay summary to make your research accessible to a wider audience.
