The Communications team builds a bridge between researchers and the public, the media as well as representatives from the academic, industrial and political sectors. It also promotes communication within the Biozentrum.
Communications at the Biozentrum informs the general public and the representatives of academia, industry and politics about the latest research at the Biozentrum, through press releases and the Internet, as well as a variety of information brochures. Moreover, by organizing public events, it provides all interested with an insight into the work of the scientists.
The Communications team is the contact point for the media, facilitating contacts to experts for diverse research topics and assisting them with interview planning and shooting or search for pictures and images. The department supports the scientists by writing press releases and other texts and providing advice with regard to media requests and public appearances. The researchers are also supported by the Communications team with further services such as the drawing of scientific illustrations and the design of posters and flyers for events.
Within the Biozentrum, the team promotes the exchange of information through the Intranet as well as the internal magazine. The department also maintains contact with the alumni and former employees, enabling them to keep up with research and life at the Biozentrum through the Alumninews.
