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.
The QUEST project is designing new AI tools that will help science journalists contextualise their stories and tailor them to different types of news audiences. (more…)
