Science and the media

Keynote by Nina Kristiansen

Science communication is all about making your research understandable, relevant and interesting for a larger audience. An effective way to do this is through radio, TV, and newspapers. But many researchers have a poor understanding of how the media works and many journalists fear academic sources. This lecture will give practical advice on science communication.

The keynote is part of a seminar organised by the
IMER jr. scholar network. It is onsite only (not streamed) at our venue in Jekteviksbakken 31.

Nina Kristiansen
is, since 2007, the editor-in-chief and director of, an online newspaper on Norwegian and international science, and, science news from Norway in English. She has earlier worked with science communication and documentation in Kilden at the Research Council of Norway and University of Oslo. She has a master degree in media and communication from the University of Oslo, and has published “Science Journalism. An introduction” and “Why you never see baby pigeons” – both in Norwegian.
