Now more than ever we depend on scientific advances to help solve the world’s biggest and toughest problems - across healthcare, society and technology. It is therefore critical for scientists to meet this challenge by getting their research into the right hands at the right time and in the right format.
Together Researcher, Research Outreach, and Science Animated will help scientists and researchers to fulfil a vital requirement of their research funding - to ensure that their work is disseminated as widely as possible and in as many different formats as possible both inside and outside the academic community to drive real impact for their work.
The services provided to the research community through the Researcher partnerships include promotion on Researcher and the ability to host real-time events through Researcher Live, the creation of engaging animations through Science Animated, and the transformation of papers into videos, podcasts and feature articles with Research Outreach.
“Our mission is to break down the barriers between science and society. By partnering with Researcher, our suite of professional outreach services are now being made available to the world's leading researchers. Something we are very excited about!” - Simon Jones, Founder of Science Animated & Research Outreach.
“We are really excited about making the different types of content created by Research Outreach available on Researcher. We want to help make science more accessible and impactful, by disseminating research in all formats. By partnering with Research Outreach we will be able to do just that and in the process help researchers reach a wider audience for their work.” - Olly Cooper, CEO of Researcher.
