It is necessary, important and essential for researchers in academia and industry to know how to explain complicated research to non-experts. You have to be able to reach different target groups with your messages to get an understanding about the importance of your work. It can be a presentation for collaboration, for decision makers or financiers for funding. It can also be an interview in media to the general public (the taxpayers) or politicians.
