Scientists

We know you have the expertise. We offer a platform to connect scientists with media & journalists, to communicate your research and create opportunities to work with the media and journalists.

Work with journalist 

So why work with journalists? Like it or not, mainstream media is the best way to reach out to a wider audience. More attention to your area of research may lead to new ideas and connections that could stimulate your research.

Database of scientists 

We consolidate all public information about scientists and their areas of expertise on one platform. We hope to not only connect journalists with scientists, but researchers of various fields are also encouraged to explore areas of collaboration through this network. 

Training for media interviews 

Dealing with journalists should not be all that daunting! We offer workshops on how to interact with the media by providing hands-on experience on interview skills, learn how to resonate your research with journalists and write press statements. We also offer editing services for science news articles.

Science communication workshop

We believe in exploring various ways to engage public interest in science through interesting approaches and experiences beyond the mainstream media. This could range from social media optimisation, creating video content, storytelling to outreach programmes.

Master that presentation

We help you to prepare for presentations or even competitions such as the Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) where PhD and Research Masters candidates must give a compelling presentation on their thesis topic in just three minutes.
