German science news service starts channel for science videos

On November 2, 2020 the German science news service Informationsdienst Wissenschaft (idw) launched a science news video channel (Science & Video had already reported here). Once a week, idw promises, the channel will be updated with new clips.

The basic idea of the project which addresses the needs of communication offices is to offer a toolbox for video production as well as a channel to reach broader audiences. The overarching goal of the initiative is to promote the use of videos in science communication.

The service and accompanying workshops are exclusive to the over 1,000 idw members.
