Based on the very positive experiences from the 2004 edition, the CER 2005 conference will focus on the manifold aspects of science communication and will provide an excellent forum and meeting place for scientists, communication professionals and journalists. The conference will also take stock of the way towards the Seventh Framework Programme.
Promoting successful science communication
Around 3000 participants including project co-ordinators, journalists and other communication professionals, press officers and representatives from research organisations will meet to promote mutual understanding of their respective roles, to share best practice and to define strategies to improve communication, outreach and dissemination of research results to the public and the press at a European level.
Dissemination networks, media associations, relevant publications and editorials together with companies and service providers in the field of information and communication will present their products and services to the reserach projects.
Showcasing European research
Throughout the event, latest research results and current scientific activities will be presented to the media in press conferences and media briefings. A huge exhibition will feature selected research initiatives as well as the communication strategies of research organisations.
ExtreMat is one of the research projects that have been selected by the European Commission to participate in the exhibition. It will present its scientific activities as well as its dissemination strategy utilising especially the synergies with the European Commission's Innovation Relay Centre Network.
