AthenaWeb

"A virtual home for science communicators

Launched in the spring of 2005, AthenaWeb is a video portal and workspace for European audiovisual communication professionals in the areas of science and scientific information. Contributors and users of the service include institutions, universities, labs, corporations, not-for-profit organisations, and of course the television and film industry (broadcasters, journalists, documentary makers, producers, people who commission TV programming, etc.).

AthenaWeb is 100% backed by the European Commission’s Research Directorate-General and is run by the science communications agency LAB TO MEDIA."

Editorial note 3 August 2011: Athenaweb seized its functions from 31 July 2011 onwards, the website is currently still accessible, but we cannot predict for how long. It is unsure at this point what will happen to the resources.

UNISCIENCE - science brought to you

This site shows visitors a collection of videos, shot at the European Planetary Science Congress 2008 in Münster, Germany. EPSC 2008 is the third international planetary science conference organised by the European Planetology Network, EuroPlaNet, financed by the European Commission. Visitors can view this "new video narrowcast service, that will give you an impression of a selection of every day's talks, with interviews with some of the speakers, younger and more senior, as well as the general ambience at the charming conference site."
