Media relations

On this page you will find information about our media relations services.

The communication department is the first reference point for journalists with questions about scientific research, activities and policy of the Fryske Akademy.
The department is also familiar with finding experts on Frisian themes. In addition, the department provides support to scientists in their relations with the public and the media.

Press releases from the Fryske Akademy can be found in our news overview. If you would like to know more about a particular theme or are looking for an expert, please contact one of our communication staff.
