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.
As the funding programmes for research and innovation evolve, the relationship between the R&I community and the society in general will also continue to transform. These evolving dynamics will highlight the important role that stakeholder engagement has in research and innovation practices. (more…)
