The School of Communication and Media, n.o. (SCM /SKAMBA) is a research establishment founded in Slovakia in 2008.
SKAMBA´s mission is to provide high quality in-depth research on issues related to communication and media, as well as courses, seminars and lectures mainly related to the dissemination of research results. SCM focuses particularly on the areas of mass media communication and the functions and interactions of the media in a liberal democracy. SCM has so far been involved in two major FP7 research projects (MEDIADEM, ANTICORRP) and some medium sized international scientific or educational projects (e.g. Media Plurality Monitor, EMEDUS, NewMedLit, the deterrence of fraud related to EU funds through investigative journalism in EU-27, and Hungarian Media Laws in Europe).
SCM closely cooperates with the Slovak Section of the Association of European Journalists. Our activities are funded by international and local research, educational and dissemination grants. Our organisational structure consists of boar of trustees, director, supervisor and staff.
OUR PUBLIC PROMISE: We deliver new scientific knowledge and we keep deadlines.
