Video Channel

Films and videos have emerged as an influential medium for communicating scientific research and have come to complement other, established formats for doing so. Videos encompass typical journalistic documentaries and science programmes on TV, as well as films aimed at fostering dialogue within the scientific community. The IRS maintains a YouTube channel and releases short films and footage from lectures and conferences to complement its print and pictorial communication.
