Information on the Humboldt Communication Lab and the themes to date: HUMBOLDT COMMUNICATION LAB A DIALOGUE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND THE MEDIA Twice a year, ten Humboldt Fellows and ten journalists from the international network of the organisation, International Journalists’ Programmes, get together at the Communication Lab for Exchange between Research and Media. During a three- to four-day workshop, they form tandems to work on a journalistic product, be it an interview, multi-media reportage, radio feature or portrait. They focus on the overarching theme of the respective meeting, such as climate change, sustainability and social justice, artificial intelligence or digitisation. The participants are supported by experienced mentors and concentrate on learning from one another. What do they expect from each other? How does trust- based cooperation function? And what constitutes good science communication?
