Research Institute of Applied Communication (R.I.A.C.)
The Research Institute of Applied Communication is a Non-Profit and Non-governmental Organization (NGO) with a research orientation. The R.I.A.C. was founded in 2006 with the participation of the Community Council Alambra. From the 2012 operates under the auspices of Neapolis University.
From the first moment of its foundation it has produced research in a multitude of issues concerning the media and the wider communication. In specific, the research team addressed the questions of content multilateralism, pluralism, freedom of expression, communication policies, public broadcasting and film analysis. It also has to its credit a rich cultural action.
The R.I.A.C. collaborates with leading institutions and universities. A typical example is the Institute’s cooperation with the Donald McGannon Communication Research Centre of the University of Fordham. The two research centres publish their work regularly in various topics of Communication. The striking feature of the Research Institute of Applied Communication that is conducting daily research activity and the most important is that in this activity are involved students as part of their practical training.
One of the immediate plans of the Institute is the creation of Internet radio at the University, which, apart from the aid that provides students of Mass Communication, will be an important communication tool in the everyday academic and student community.
