The rationale of the project is to transfer the knowledge and experience of journalists to researchers, in order for the scientific community to better communicate their findings and technical information to the general public.

To express themselves in an accurate, yet practical way when dealing with the media, scientists have to gain a full understanding of the functioning of today’s communication media: press, television, social media, etc.

MAITRE gets to the heart of the communication challenges that researchers face nowadays, equipping them with the skills and tools with which media professionals address the public.
