Final Report - EUROWISTDOM (European women in science TV Drama on Message)

Project ID: 36673
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


It was the project's target to initialise an intensive awareness raising process and to promote the information exchange between writers, producers, and TV executives on the one hand and scientists, researchers and engineers on the other hand. At the centre of this project was selecting and rewarding scripts with SET contents and female role models, followed by scientific advice and support for the authors and marketing for the production companies and broadcasters.

In the following report, it first outlines the general situation regarding the impact of TV and entertainment formats for the image of SET and the decision making process involved in choosing a career. In this context, the focus will be on the situation in Germany, as it was a declared objective of the project to make the experience gathered in the EuroPAWS project transferable and to initiate a similar process in Germany. This will be followed by a summary of the most important activities and the results of the project.

The second chapter provides a detailed account of the activities that took place within the project's duration, following the adjusted work packages in a chronological sequence and highlights the respective contributions made by the partner organisations. That section is followed by explanations regarding the financial plan. The main results are presented in the third chapter and compared to the mutually agreed objectives.
