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 will develop tools, recommendations and guidelines for communicators and practitioners working in the fields of journalism, social media, and museums.
