What QUEST is
QUEST defines, measures and supports quality in science communication. The project will develop tools and guidelines for improving effectiveness in dialogue between science and wider publics.
How QUEST works
We are a team of experts, scholars and media professionals across Europe who have come together to investigate current issues in science communication. We will develop tools, recommendations and guidelines for communicators and practitioners working in the fields of journalism, social media, and museums.
We believe there is a particular urgency to cultivate quality and effectiveness in the highly contested areas of vaccines, global warming, and artificial intelligence.
Media coverage of AI tends to be binary: either it is a revolutionary opportunity to change the world for the better, or a dystopian tool that will end privacy as we know it. This episode of our podcast explores how science communicators could portray AI in a more balanced way. (more…)
The recent online event discussed how science communication professionals can benefit from European research projects. (more…)
The first episode of the QUEST podcast discusses how three European museum spaces approach science communication. (more…)
As conferences switch to online formats, the science communication community is rapidly developing innovative ways to engage the public at virtual events. The experience of the STEAM summer school gave some insight into how online and hybrid SciComm events might be organised in the future. (more…)
