The media can have a big influence on how people understand your research, or whether they hear about it at all. This research communications and media session will highlight how the Communications Office can help ensure the public have access to your scientific findings and expertise, through the news media, The Conversation and social media. You'll hear first-hand how research news is broken, what it means for an academic, just how big a reach it can have and how it can influence research reputation, citiations, partnerships, altmetrics and impact.
