Communicating Food Science in Riga, Latvia

22 October - 23 October 2013, Riga (MAITRE)


Scientists often may not sufficiently involve themselves in the communication process; whereas on the other hand, the media do not always give them the opportunity to do so.

Keeping that in mind, the EU-funded project MAITRE is organising a media training seminar on October 23-24 at the Institute of Food Safety, Animal Health and Environment "BIOR" in Riga.

Overall, the seminar will provide practical and directly applicable advice for dealing with the media. Through hands-on sessions, the attendees will learn the concept of a press release, will practice training for short on-camera news announcements, and will rehearse interview situations, such as on camera, on radio, or in panel debates.

By and large, this workshop pursues to transfer the knowledge and experience of journalists to researchers, in order for the scientific community to better communicate their findings and technical information to the general public.

Ultimately, the MAITRE project aims to contribute to the promotion of food research knowledge in Europe.
