Thinking about impact? Curious to know how to communicate your research to the outside world?

As part of this year's research conference, the University's Media and Communications Team and their PR partners Communications Management are hosting drop-in sessions in the Council Room (MA221) from 1-5pm. Whether a seasoned media professional or a complete media novice, Helen and Justin from CM will be able to answer any queries on raising your research profile in the media. The session is open, but if you have something particular in mind you want to discuss, then do contact Helen and a one-to-one session can be arranged.
