The Inserm press room, launched by the press service in collaboration with Newround professionals at the beginning of 2013, was created to give journalists easier access to the results of work conducted by Inserm’s researchers. This digital initiative was set up to meet their needs for information and is adapted to changing practices in an environment where social media, in particular, are being continuously developed. The press room is viewed by an average 21,500 users per month (single visitors), in France and abroad, which is raising Inserm’s international profile.

The Inserm press service, part of Inserm’s Scientific Information and Communication Department (DISC), is honoured to see this honorable mention awarded to a French public institution. This contributes to rewarding the efforts made by Inserm to fulfil its role of bringing scientific information to a wide audience, particularly through the media.
