Communicating our research: (nearly) all you need to know

June 1st, 2023

The research marketing and communications team in External Relations has put together a new SharePoint site Communicating our research.

The site shares the tools and support available to help raise the reputation and profile of research at the university.

It is aimed at researchers and all those who support the delivery of our world-class research.

Communicating our research highlights how our discoveries and impact on the world can be shared in an engaging, effective way to audiences you want to reach.

This includes information on media training, establishing a web presence, public policy and engagement training, the Researcher Academy communication programme and how to access expertise, imagery and assets like PowerPoint presentations.

You’ll also be able to find the latest news around research opportunities and initiatives.

Professor Sam Kingman, Interim Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange said: “The site aims to give researchers and their colleagues the tools to share our research successes.

Please take a look and see what’s of interest.”
