Public Engagement in the 21st Century: Engaging the Media
New

Wed 22 Jun 2011

Description


Getting your research into the print or broadcast media is still an incredibly powerful way of sharing ideas and findings with a mass audience, but journalists are busy people with tight deadlines and a high turnover of possible news stories. How do you get their attention for your research? How do you build a good relationship with the media, so that they keep coming back? What are the potential pitfalls?

Target audience

Research staff and PhD students
