Whether it’s Lewis Capaldi testing out new technology to reduce tics for people with Tourettes Syndrome or ‘ghost’ drivers on campus gauging pedestrian reactions to driverless cars, the university, its research and its people are rarely out of the media spotlight.
The university’s Press Office team acts as a first point of contact for UK and international media enquiries and tells the world about the university’s incredible research discoveries.
Among its services, the team also monitors and evaluates media coverage, tracking the number of articles or programmes featuring the university – everything from BBC’s Newsnight and the New York Post to BBC East Midlands Today and the Nottingham Post – and its potential audience around the globe.
The team’s Media Officers Liz Goodwin and Faith Pring produce a daily email alert for staff members at the university featuring a round-up of the university’s top news stories.
The Daily News Summary highlights up to five of the most impactful pieces of recent coverage and provides information on the faculty involved, the spokesperson featured and, where known, the estimated numbers of readers or viewers (reach).
Head of News in the Press Office, Emma Thorne, said: “I think it’s hugely important for staff to be aware of the many and varied places that the university features in the media.
“It can offer a sense of how well the university and expertise of the people who work for it are regarded by the wider public and can help to engender a sense of pride in the institution in which we all play a part.”
