In 2018, Malmö University is celebrating its 20th anniversary with lectures, conferences, popular science talks, debates and exhibitions. 

In this exhibition, the library presents research from Malmö University’s five faculties. Research is a complex process, which questions, investigates and develops new aspects of the world. In this way, research fields are constantly moving forward. Results are disseminated in many ways, for example through scholarly publication, collaboration, researcher networks or exhibitions. 

When research findings reach a wider audience, they are presented in a simplified form and often out of context. This means that research findings presented in the media are often misinterpreted. Individual findings are part of a greater whole and are therefore not well suited for news headlines.  

This exhibition highlights the importance of reviewing information critically and encourages the visitor to think about whether you relate to news with your reason or with your emotions. 

Malmö University partakes in the VA (Public & Science) campaign #hurvetdudet (Eng.: How do you know that?). The aim of the campaign is to increase the knowledge of politicians and the public about what science is, how it is done, how different research findings can be evaluated and why research-based knowledge is needed as a basis for decisions about the development of society. 


Tar du till dig nyheter med förnuft eller känsla?

När forskning når en bred publik är den förenklad och ofta tagen ur sin kontext. Det gör att forskningsresultat i den snabba nyhetsrapporteringen lätt misstolkas eller missuppfattas. Enskilda resultat är en del av ett större sammanhang och fungerar därför sällan som nyhetsrubriker. Utställningen belyser vikten av att granska all information kritiskt och uppmanar dig som besökare att fundera på om du tar till dig nyheter med förnuft eller känsla.
