RELATE – REsearch LAbs for TEaching journalists
RELATE is a EU-funded project aimed at bridging the gap between science and society
The project brings together scientists with next generation journalists for one full week. The journalists experience how to deal with scientific topics and test their competences in a real laboratory. Two core research institutions (ENEA and EPFL), complemented by the national research agency of Turkey (TÜBITAK) acting as a ‘gateway’ to Turkish laboratories are the main hosting organisations but other research centres can join as well. The young journalists outcome is to produce articles, audio and video productions aimed at the general public. 80 journalists participated in the project.
