Our last interests with some financial actors (IQ Option, Hellenic Bank…)

Created in 2013, IQ Option is a binary options broker owned and operated by Alta Vista Trading Limited, Seychelles. Since its debutit has been at the forefront of developing innovative technologies in the binary options trading industry. It soon gained a lot of popularity thanks also to the app, and now is one of the most utilized trading platform in the West of the world and in the near future there will probably be an investement in Thailand as well, to widen IQ Option’s public ( as one can see there’s not an official thai site yet).

Maitre project : to a an expansion in Thailand through a sponsorship from affiliates ?

MAITRE (Media Actions for Internation Training of Researchers is a EU funded project, born in 2011, with the aim to give research centres and universities the opportunity to host a professional media training. Until now IQ Option wasn’t related to food science as Maitre has always been, and through Minerva, coordinator of the Maitre project and promoter of the media training organization, they got in contact. IQ Option affiliates recentely took an interest in the Maitre poject in order to offer a sponsorship to maitre project in exchange of some advertising from us

The main focus of Maitre’s seminars, as one can see, are providing the partecipants with the necessary tools they should use when interacting with the media. Communication is key when it comes to promoting and becoming one of the examples of best practice in the trading field. This improvement will surely highlight the already shining success of IQ Option promoting.

Science may be a universal language...

...but communicating results can get lost in translation. The question that follows is how to solve this? The problem stems from the media's over-simplification of a given subject or insufficient involvement from scientists when communicating to the public at large.

Since September 2011, the EU funded project MAITRE has been running 50 training seminars in several EU and associated countries, where journalists and media experts will train a target group of roughly 600 researchers from organisations involved in food science.

How will this initiative tackle the issue at hand? MAITRE aims at transferring the special expertise and knowledge of journalists on to researchers, in order to increase the willingness of researchers to interact with the media and to properly communicate scientific information to the public.

Each attendant will be provided with the MAITRE guidelines at the end of the seminar. For more information, please visit the Seminar - Suggested Reading section on MAITRE website
