The ERUM project is a European initiative which addresses the need for the development of students’ key transversal competences in terms of media literacy, evidence-based communication and resilience to dis/misinformation. It also intends to strengthen the capacity of media experts vis-a-vis evidence- and research-based communication.
Students - Develop key transversal skills and build resilience to dis/misinformation.
Higher Education Institutions - Collaborate with media and scientific experts to improve the educational offer of universities.
Media Representatives - Connect and learn from Higher Education professionals to improve evidence-based communication.
Media representation of controversial topics - The reports elaborate on a methodology to apprehend media content in a critical way and present a comprehensive analysis of the media representation gaps in various highly-relevant topics of our society.
Guidelines for evidence-based communication - The guidelines provide guidance and support to postgraduate students to develop their skills for good scientific-communication practices. The booklet underlines the current media practices and elaborates on the good practices of media popularisation of science.
