Scientific Communication

Press and Public Relation of the SFB 1070

The transfer of scientific results to the public is an important task of large research collaborations. The aim of this project is to bring the main topics of the SFB 1070 ResourceCultures on the relationship between resources and cultural dynamics into the current public discussion. A wide variety of media formats are used to implement the project: public lectures, newspaper and magazine articles, radio reports and television spots, contributions to the Children's University and school project days at Tübingen schools. In addition, there are appearances in social media and other web-based forms of communication. New in the program are online exhibitions to visualise the complex results of the various sub-projects and make them easy to understand. Other tasks of the "Resources and Public Spheres" project include general press work in close cooperation with the Office for University Communication at the University of Tübingen.
