Scientists get advice on how to communicate

The European Commission has come out with a new report that CORDIS News describes as "a 'survival kit' to help scientists communicate their activities to the public more effectively".

The 76-page report 'Communicating Science: A Scientist's Survival Kit', claims that it "provides the essentials for public communication in science and technology for scientists who wish to take this task on in person as well as for those who choose to use the media or professionals".

Unfortunately, the list of "web links" is tilted heavily towards the official view. It is also out of date as it has a link to a report that is no longer available where promised on the web site of Department of Trade and Industry.
