    Episode 5: Social media

    Episode 5: Social media

    Social media is a fast and accessible way for scientists to communicate about the results of their research, find potential collaborators, and make a positive connection between the science and the public at large. This episode looks at scientists’ use of social media, what platforms and strategies they employ, and what advantages the different social media platforms offer. We also highlight the guidance that the QUEST project has produced to help scientists improve their social media activities.

    Episode 4: Vaccines

    Episode 4: Vaccines

    Levels of vaccine hesitancy in some European countries during the Covid-19 pandemic have been worryingly high, and problems with vaccine supply chains, along with a rare medical outcome associated with certain vaccines, have also damaged public confidence. This episode looks at the issue of communication about vaccines, how effective it is, and how to best tackle sometimes understandable and deep-seated concerns about vaccine safety.

    Episode 3: Climate change

    Episode 3: Climate change

    This episode looks at the challenges that scientists and journalists face when communicating about climate change. Should scientists aim to make confident statements and avoid discussing scientific uncertainties when talking to the general public about climate change? Rather than just feeding the public with negative stories, how can journalists educate and inform their audience, and help build the public’s agency and ability to respond to the crisis?

    In this episode:
    - Dr. Jana Sillmann, Research Director, CICERO Center for International Climate Research, Norway
    - Philippa Nuttall Jones, Editor-in-chief, Energy Monitor, Belgium

    Hosted by Barbara Schofield. Production by Atina Dimitrova.

    Episode 2: Artificial intelligence

    Episode 2: Artificial intelligence

    Artificial intelligence is one of the biggest issues facing human society in the 21st century, and there is an urgent need to consider its ethical accountability and impact on diversity. This episode discusses how science communicators can strike a balance between describing the potential benefits of AI technologies (increased efficiency, automation, smarter decision-making) while at the same time pointing out the possible negative consequences and risks, including job losses, increased surveillance and worsened economic inequality.

    In this episode:
    - Ann Nowé, Professor and Head of the Artificial Intelligence Lab, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium
    - Milena Merten, Lead Editor, ada, Germany

    The audio clips of Eva Kaili are taken from an interview with EIT Digital in June 2020.

    Hosted by Barbara Schofield. Production by Atina Dimitrova.
