Pre-Conference on 11 November: Let’s communicate our research

Let’s communicate our research!

Panel Discussion and Reception

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the European Journalism Observatory

This year, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the European Journalism Observatory (, a network of collaborating journalism research institutes based, by now, in 14 countries, promoting dialogue between media researchers and media practitioners.  

The European Journalism Observatory (EJO) disseminates research results and analysis on journalism and the global media industry internationally in ten European languages and makes these results accessible to journalists, media managers and other decision-makers in the media as well as to students and to interested publics.

EJO has been founded in 2004. Today, the University of Lugano (Switzerland), the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (Oxford University, UK), the Erich Brost Institute for International Journalism (University of Dortmund, Germany) and the University of Wroclaw (Poland) are among the research institutes associated within the EJO network. As a new partner, the Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology/University Institute of Lisbon (CIES-IUL) is joining us in fall 2014, creating a Portuguese version of EJO.

On the occasion of the ECREA Conference, we want to present and discuss best practice strategies in communicating media research from different academic and journalism cultures. How can we reach a broader public with our research results and communicate more effectively with journalists and via social media in today’s “knowledge society”?

Our panel “Let’s communicate our research!” will be held on November 11, the day before the official start of the ECREA 2014 European Communication Conference in Lisbon, Portugal.
