Research Group on Community Media
A forming research group is looking for members who are interested in take part in research on
community media. Gabriella Velics, - who also a vice president of CMFE and responsible for Research,
Education and Expert Group issues - has an idea to facilitate research on community media with
launching a formal research group (ACME Research Group: Alternative, Community, Media,
Education)at her Institute.
The Faculty of Education and Psychology (PPK) of the 375-year old Eötvös Loránd University in
Hungary is one of the eight faculties presently. As our slogan says: „PPK, everything that is human”
education and research here is lot more than just gaining academic knowledge, it is a mission as well.
The majority of Hungarian researchers of community media work for Eötvös Loránd University at
different faculties, such as Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Education and
Psychology. As research groups are key elements of knowledge transfer and multiplication, the aim is to help collaboration of researchers on community media as many aspects as we can.
The call is open for academics, researchers, PhD students both on national and international level.
