Creating a headline? Resources now available for working with the media
- 29 June 2011
We also believe that the media can provide an excellent platform for engaging the public with your research, and can form an important part of a two way exchange with the public. As Professor Stephen Curry, Professor of Structural Biology, Imperial College London suggests:
“Researchers who make themselves accessible through blogging are, I would argue, better exposed to the concerns and interests of the general public…Exposure to ideas and questions from the public can help us to think more deeply about our work and what potential it has to impact on the problems that our society is now facing”.
Working with Graphic Science, the NCCPE has created new guides and methods to help researchers consider how best to engage the public with their work through the media. Whether you want to be the next David Attenborough, or start your own blog, these resources should help get you started.
