hybrid conference (Vienna & online) – 28/04/2022

The conference addresses the issue of evidence-based communication within the media and higher education institutions and the role of these institutions when it comes to media and information literacy in contemporary societies. The event will bring together researchers, students, media professionals and policy makers to address the following questions:

  • What are the recommended actions to improve the quality of information within today's fast-paced societies?
  • What role can academics and journalists play in limiting the spread of mis/disinformation and how do they perceive their own role?
  • How do we communicate and report about scientific issues and what have we learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • How can we foster media and information literacy?

The conference is organised within the framework of the Erasmus+ project ERUM (Enhancing Research Understanding through Media).
