What: At this seminar, we will discuss modern media, and how it relates to science news and reporting. It has arguably never been easier to reach out with your findings, but it has also never been this difficult to navigate the media landscape! Here, we aim to help you find smart and efficient ways to reach out. How can the Division for Communication and the University Press Office help to promote your research? How do journalists work? What are they looking for, and what can we do to reach out to them?
Linda Koffmar is a press officer at the Division for Communication and External Relations at Uppsala University. She will talk about how she and her colleagues work with media contacts and give some tips and tricks on what researchers can do if they want to communicate their research via media.
