Want To Write A Media Briefing For EEA-ESEM 2023?
Do you want your paper presented at EEA-ESEM 23 to be a success in terms of press coverage? One way to achieve this is by drafting a good non-technical summary of the paper. The summary should help make the research accessible to a wider public, setting out why the work is important and what you hope it shows. It should not be the abstract of your paper!

With the help of the EEA media consultant, Romesh Vaitilingam, and the team at Communicating Economics, we encourage you to read their tips here to prepare your own media briefing.  Your media briefing will become public under your profile page and all journalists will be able to filter through the presenters who have written media briefings. We will actively engage with journalists during the course of the congress.
