Europe Willing To Pay To Get Science On Air

The European Union has set aside around $1.9 million to help encourage television stations and radio producers to increase their science-related programming.

LONDON — In an effort to boost science and engineering the European Union has said it will directly fund the making of television and radio programs about science and research. No money has been set aside for print or online publishing but part of the cash is being targeted at science drama.

According to the European Union people with science and engineering backgrounds rarely make programming decisions and the topics are frequently ignored by mainstream broadcasters.

The European Union has set aside 1.6 million euro (about $1.9 million) to contribute to scientific programming with the aim of encouraging European television and radio producers and stations to increase their science output.

Of the funding 1 million euro (about $1.2 million) is intended for direct programming and 600,000 euro (about $700,000) is for exhibitions, documentaries, and science-based theater across Europe.
