Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


As much of the ongoing research is funded with public money, it is evident the need to inform the public about the main research results, so as to allow interested people to follow the ongoing developments and to form their own opinion on the basis of sound, science-based facts and data.
Fortunately, more and more events are organised on communicating science such as that held in Brussels on 14 and 15 November 2005. The European Commission publishes and freely distributes a number of brochures, movies, leaflets and other materials on European research for different age ranges. Science journalists are increasingly reporting about research and schools and science museums are multiplying their initiatives.
Probably, scientists and researchers can also still improve their skills and practice in interfacing with the media, elaborating and presenting information in a way that non initiated persons can easily and rapidly understand.
With the intention of providing a service to those scientists and researchers, [the European Commission published][...] the English edition of this Survival Kit written by the journalist Giovanni Carrada, whose original publication has been supported by Italy’s National Permanent Conference of Deans from the Faculties of Science and Technology.
