SCIENCE and
MEDIA RELATIONS

What do media expect from scientists? How can scientists prepare relevant information for journalists? How to establish a trust relationship? What type of news can be considered important from a media standpoint?

To answer these questions, we propose an online conversation between science journalists and scientists on Friday 20 November from 14:00 to 15:30.

Three speakers from three different media will express their views, needs and constraints prior to opening the floor to an interactive Q&A session. This online conference is an opportunity to clarify the expectations of each party and to exchange views on how to build an environment favourable to scientific information.
