Idea Circle Dinner Discussion #12:
Accelerating News: a bridge between science and institutional communications
Accelerating News is not your usual science communication publication. A newsletter produced and curated by the CERN EU Projects Office, it is published through a website, it focuses mainly on the impact of the science it features, and it has a less-than-general audience, such as projects’ communities, engineers, physicists, PhD students, and industrial collaborators. So what is Accelerating News? What is its purpose? What sort of stories does it publish? And, more importantly, how can you participate?
ICCD#12 will answer these questions and more, as it takes us through the 101 of communication strategy and takes a look at Accelerating News as a project with specific goals, audiences, channels and evaluation methods. Join us and let us know about your expectations for Accelerating News.
