In the industry, most professionals are well aware that they may need some help to communicate their messages more effectively. For this reason, we have entire business areas for marketing, advertising, PR and media production.
In science, on the other hand, there is a peculiar lack of agencies specialized in helping scientists communicate more effectively – especially when it comes to peer-to-peer scientific communication. Instead, a DIY culture flourishes where smart people who are outstanding in their intellectual field produce PowerPoint presentations and research posters which would, how should I put it, surely raise some eybrows in the world outside science.
The list below is an attempt to find out how many agencies and freelancers who are out there. If you have a suggestion for the list, please contact Olle Bergman, project leader of Crastina.
