Engagement, marketing and communication services for innovators in STEM
Want to better communicate and connect with your stakeholders?
Your customers or stakeholders might be policy makers, land managers, business owners, customers, politicians or journalists..
There are many reasons for communicating innovation, science, technology, engineering, mathematics… these are just a few examples:
Show why your innovation matters
Create products they'll use
With Innovate Communicate, you won’t only work with PR, communications and marketing specialists; you’ll also get a delivery partner that understands what it’s like to work in STEM and innovation.
Quality, creative, on-target services
Stakeholder engagement planning
Not feeling you’re connected with the right people and organisations? Our stakeholder engagement planning service will help you get crystal clear on who do you want to engage with, what your goals are and the methods that will work best for your situation.
Innovation planning and research
Do you have a problem in your organisation that you think could be solved through new approaches or technology? We can help with innovation planning and research.
Women in STEM: Impact Program
*In development* Services to help organisations assess then take action on their diversity and inclusion priorities plus programs for women in STEM.
Workshops and Training
You need to bring people together to work through a strategic question, learn new skills or create a plan? We tailor workshops and training to suit your specific needs. This includes creating training guides, manuals and templates.
Need a project manager to step in and get the plan sorted? This could be ensuring you’ve got your PM ‘ducks in a row’ for a traditional or agile approach. You might need: scope of works, product requirements, workplans, stakeholder engagement plan or a process to track progress.
We create, manage and deliver public events for all ages. Whether it’s innovation, changemaking or STEAM (science, tech, engineering, the arts, maths), we can design and deliver engaging events and activations.
Imagine what it would be like to have your funders, collaborators and customers enthusiastically cheering you on and being part of your success.
That communication is in the “too hard” basket?
Perhaps it seems that:
- writing or pulling together a quality publication needs clarity, energy, focus and creativity
- developing a strategy can often mean (a lot of) time, research, thought and discussion with everyone involved
- designing and delivering engaging science outreach, events and workshops can be complicated, with many moving parts
- producing content that reflects your brand and suits different audiences on digital channels requires attention to detail and creativity
- your team needs communication training and coaching around engaging with non-technical, diverse audiences
Want to connect with your stakeholders?
Many clients we’ve worked with have wanted to do better public engagement. But they haven’t had a communication strategy or an outreach plan.
Some have been too busy to take on another project or team member and others haven’t had science communication skills.
Communication is crucial for research and innovation
Whether you’re working in the area of climate change, technology, agriculture, defence and security, health or environmental science you need effective science communication.
Innovation only works when it’s connected
You can’t add value or contribute knowledge without communicating…
Research and development, as part of the innovation ecosystem, can’t exist in a bubble. It needs to be informed by — or designed with — stakeholders, customers or the people who the work affects or is designed for.
We understand your world
Our science communication services are also underpinned by our understanding of the (often) complex R&D and innovation landscape. You’re likely juggling:
- negotiating funding
- regular reporting (that may feel never-ending)
- managing your team/s
- satisfying regulations
- responding to requests from inside and outside your organisation
- keeping up to date with the latest research in your field
- engaging with policy makers, delivery partners, customers, the media…
Our science communication services are designed for STEM professionals and researchers who want to amplify their innovations for more equitable societies and environmental sustainability.
