Writing a compelling lay summary



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.




This workshop will be facilitated by
Monique Roy-Sole
Director of Communication & Marketing,
Office of the Vice-President, Research.
