Wissen in der Pendlerzeitung


The project «Wissenschaft in der Pendlerzeitung» (Science in a free commuter newspaper) has been funded jointly by Gebert Rüf Stiftung and the Mercator Foundation Switzerland since 2009. The cornerstone of the project is a promising new approach to media-based science communication aimed at reaching a maximum readership: Without compromising on quality journalism, scientific topics are presented in the form of scientainment (an amalgam of science + entertainment) in a weekly two-page section headed «Knowledge» appearing in the free commuter paper «20 Minuten». The editors of the double-page feature enjoy journalistic freedom (choice of themes, layout, focus) and are also independent of the free paper and the two funding foundations.
