Last Friday, January 28, Pope Francis received in audience the members of the International Consortium of Catholic Media, of which Blanquerna is a member. Among those in attendance, whom the Holy Father greeted, was Dra. Míriam Díez Bosch, director of the Blanquerna Observatory on Media, Religion and Culture; Dra. Alba Sabaté, Deputy Director of the Observatory, and Sílvia Vehí, an alumni of the Degree in Journalism and Corporate Communication and a student of the Master’s in Audiovisual Executive Production PROA.

In recent months, the Consortium has promoted the portal, with the aim of providing the Catholic media with verified information on COVID-19 vaccines. The Blanquerna Observatory has participated with a report on the media coverage of the COVID-19 vaccine. The project has received funding from the Google News Initiative.
