Our new media strategy following our mid-term review, which aims to reach out to stakeholders beyond academia, is already bearing fruit. And this new focus received a real boost with the release of the IPCC Working Group 1 report.
Australian researchers in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes have made major contributions to the 2021 IPCC Working Group 1 report, through the authorship of the report, review and the many scientific papers cited in the report.
The past four months have seen the Centre very active in the media as extreme heat, fires and drought start early in the season. We have also played an important role in communicating IPCC reports, examining the science behind policy and building up our Instagram feed.
If you need to create an academic poster in a hurry, we have a nice template here that can cut it down to an hour and still be effective. Also check out Kim Reid's new PhD blog and find out about the recent combined Centre of Excellence media workshop.
The past four months have been incredibly busy with a new research brief structure, big changes in social media, and a mainstream media takeover likely to have significant ramifications for our communication of research.
