WHAT WE DO

WHY WE DO IT

Covering science and its multiple dimensions is a constant challenge. Science communication must go beyond the idea of simply decoding scientific jargon: it must interpret results and scrutinize the consequences of the scientific endeavor, providing audiences with a critical understanding of how science shapes our present and our future at the national and global level. In a world of ever-increasing complexity, science journalists and communicators are key to help audiences understand the difference between relevant information and dressed interests.

“The journalist is no longer an intermediary, merely transmitting information as a scientist's spokesperson or postman. The journalist is a mediator who must independently reflect upon information and its consequences.”
