Open to: Academic | Student

You’ve planned the research, collected your data, and written the paper. Now what? How can you get the story out to the right audience? What role does the media play in effectively sharing your findings with the wider public? Communicating your research with a wider audience is a key part of the research process, and frequently required by funders or stakeholders. But often, it’s hard to know where to start. Who should you approach first, how can you create an effective plan for dissemination and package your research findings in a way that will attract an audience? In an era of ‘fake news’ and ‘post-truth’, communicating science can be a challenge.

This event, organised by the UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain Early Career Network, brings together a range of speakers from media relations teams at UCL, research funders, and media organisations, as well as researchers with extensive experience of disseminating research findings through the media.
