Promote communication

Contributions are primarily intended for projects that promote long-term scientific or popular scientific communication processes. The projects should preferably be of permanent value for the publication and dissemination of science and popular science, for example in books, magazines, media, social media, public gatherings - or in whole new contexts. This may include developing and practically testing methods and tools, training in communicative skills or testing new forms for bringing together publishers, publicists, researchers and the general public. This may include developing and practically testing methods and tools, training in communicative skills or testing new forms for bringing together publishers, publicists, researchers and the general public. The fact that a project aims at long-term effects, even if it relates to a communicative point effort, can be ensured by broad and efficient dissemination to relevant groups of information about its layout and results.
If the project is part of a larger research project, it should be clearly stated in the application how it is separated from the lager project, both scientifically, practically and economically. Contributions are not given for the printing of books and other reports from planned, ongoing or completed research projects.
