The communication of research is of vital importance not only to stimulate public debate and inform policy decisions but also to create transparency regarding the severe measures. However, successful communication and policy advice is extremely difficult: the advice needs to be timely and it needs to be based on solid research findings.
INSIGHTS aims to build a bridge between academia, policy makers and the wider public (Platform for Exchange). The most recent research findings of BSE researchers are summarized in INSIGHTS for the benefit of everyone.
INSIGHTS will provide professional guidance and formal training on how to interact with the public and communicate academic methods and results (Structured Guidance for Transfer). The structured training is targeted at advanced doctoral students and early-career researchers (postdocs) but is also open to senior researchers of the BSE community.
INSIGHTS has a special section on Corona Crisis that consists of insights on Covid 19 prepared by BSE researchers between April and July 2020: INSIGHTS on Corona Crisis.
