Press Department

    The press office of SRUK/CERU is formed by a motivated and enthusiastic team that have the overarching aim of communicating and disseminating the achievements of its members.

    We serve as the link between SRUK/CERU researchers and general public and as the vehicle of promotion of the work that our members develop in all scientific fields.

    The principal objectives of the SRUK/CERU Press office are:

    • To promote the outcomes of our members' research

    • To attract the society attention about Science

    • To promote scientific outreach

    • To inform and highlight the work and achievements of the activities and actions of the SRUK/CERU

    To achieve them we use:

    • Press invitations: these documents are used to promote events organised by the SRUK/CERU constituencies to the national and regional media.

    • Press releases: they are used to summarise the most relevant information of an event organised by the SRUK/CERU.

    • Articles: these media publications serve to communicate an outstanding piece of work done by an SRUK/CERU member. As well, the Press Office facilitates the production of opinion articles that discuss current “hot” topics.

    • Outreach activities:
      • “En Fase Experimental” Radio programme that serves as the perfect platform to reach and inspire the general public about science.
      • 1,2,3 … Explore !!! A new blog that will be launched in 2016 to discuss how science and its progress affects our lives.

    The Online and Press departments work together to boost, develop and communicate the media activities of SRUK/CERU in a clear, transparent and truthful manner.
