Find out how to promote your research with The Conversation

Are you looking to demonstrate the impact of your research, build new collaborations and improve your links with industry?

The Conversation UK is an independent source of news and views from the academic and research community, delivered direct to the public. It’s an official partner of the University and its editorial team can help you plan, write and deliver your messages to a wide range of audiences.

If you work in research you are invited to a short introductory workshop on writing for the website on at 12:15pm on Monday 9 February.

Articles written by colleagues have been syndicated across national and international media after appearing on their website.

Dr Theo Papadapolous, from our Department of Social & Policy Sciences, said: "Until a few days ago I was happy if my academic work was read by a few hundred colleagues and students in the span of a year.

“My piece on the Greek elections was viewed 13,500+ times across the globe over two days, republished at the top in the web pages of 'the New Statesman' and the US's 'The New Republic' and re-tweeted left, right and centre."

At the session on Monday, Laura Hood, Politics and Society Editor at The Conversation, will introduce the news website, and discuss how you can use it to promote and publicise your research.

Theo will also talk briefly about his experience of writing for The Conversation, and how it helped his research find a wider audience.

Afterwards there will be a Q&A session with Laura – a great chance to find out more about promoting research and writing for the news platform.

Date: Mon 9 Feb

Time: 12.15pm-1pm

Location: CB 3.15

Coffee and tea will be provided. Please RSVP to Gail Gillespie if you would like to attend:
