Science and technology change our world and influence how we work, communicate and get informed. Especially in times of crises, such as the current global COVID19 pandemic, science communication has a special responsibility. Therefore, together with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH), the IJP would like to promote the cooperation between science and media. During a Communication Lab, IJP alumni and fellows of the AvH have the opportunity to participate in webinars with leading researchers and media representatives over several days and subsequently produce a joint digital product. Afterwards, all contributions created during the Communication Lab are reviewed by a jury, who will award the top three journalistic works.
