Reaching out with research findings, thereby creating value for society, is a key goal for Mistra-SWECIA. The media is one important channel for this reaching out. For the media to report on research, the research in question must offer concrete and newsworthy conclusions, and there must be an audience interested in listening. In the case of climate change adaptation, both of these conditions are met.
