CONNECT WITH OUR CREATIVE INDUSTRY PARTNERS TO MEET YOUR RESEARCH COMMUNICATION NEEDS
In its inaugural year the Marine Knowledge Exchange Network, partnered with local creative industries to overcome the language and technical barriers in marine research communication. The philosophy behind this approach was to start to build capacity within the creative industries sector to understand the language of marine science to be able to better assist the communications essential for the realisation of long term impact around research outputs. This successful and mutually beneficial collaboration has resulted in the production of a series of infographics spanning various research, technology and local policy projects, such as the impacts of the 2013 Storm Surge on the Norfolk and Suffolk coastlines, carbon storage in the coastal and offshore marine environment, and a graphic illustration of the Cefas Smartbuoy technology. With our invaluable experience and strong relationship with the creative industries, M-KEN can assist you with your research communication goals, and indeed can strengthen your funding bids via pathways to impact at an early stage.
