Call for Researchers: Understanding Current Practices of Science Communication in Albania and Serbia

Understanding Current Practices of Science Communication in Albania and Serbia; Recommendations for Enhancing Effectiveness

PERFORM wants to gain a better understanding of the current performance of science communication in Albania and Serbia, and how science communication can be strengthened, to contribute to the overall objectives and the outcome areas of PERFORM. In this ambit, PERFORM will support a research project focused on assessing the current state of science communication in Albania and Serbia in the fields of economic and political sciences.

The objectives of the research project are:
  1. Gain an understanding of the current performance of science communication in Serbia and Albania (practices, analyses, impacts), and identify the key (underlying) factors that drive and impede good science communication in Serbia and Albania. 
  2. Develop recommendations for support measures that will address those factors critical for a more impacting science communication. Addressees of these recommendations will be PERFORM itself, the social science research community, and relevant policy institutions in Serbia and Albania.
 
For this purpose, PERFORM is looking for two research teams, one in Albania and one in Serbia, who will work on a research project, with scientific support by the University of Graz.
