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.
Our interview with Franck Wastin, Head of “Knowledge for Nuclear Safety, Security and Safeguards” unit at the Joint Research Centre (JRC), provides insights into how complex scientific topics can be communicated effectively within the academic community and to the public at large. (more…)
Our latest newsletter features an update about the first year of the project, how we use co-creation workshops to examine how quality in science communication can be measured, our recent articles on European science communication landscape, journalism, and education, and much more. (more…)
As QUEST reaches its midpoint, it is a perfect opportunity to review our activities and achievements during the first year of the project, as well as detailing what our plans are for the remaining 12 months. (more…)
The two concepts are fundamental to our research approach. This article explains what these terms mean within the context of the QUEST project, and how they relate to our work. (more…)
