About ScicomX

We are the media agency that understands the needs of academic organizations and the context they are operating in [get in touch].  

The science communication accelerator (scicomX) was founded out of the frustration that science too often does not get the visibility it needs to have a positive impact on society. 

Though the social media space is becoming more complex every day, it is still the best that could have happened to science communication and the opportunities are vast. However, while the opportunity to reach small niche audiences at scale has never been greater, many organizations fall short of their potential to translate science for broader audiences. As a result, the influence of science remains limited, although in these polarized times it would be very necessary to give science a stronger voice.

To give science a stronger voice, the science communication accelerator is on a mission to support research organizations and universities to craft and implement timely communication strategies. 

Do you have a twitter account, but you would like to go broader? Do you want to build the reputation of your institute or research organization, but you do not know where to start? Do you want to start your institute’s podcast, but you would like to speak to someone who has already set up several of them and grown substantial audiences around them? 

If you find yourself in one or more of these questions, then you found the right partner to support you in your journey to build more visibility for your research and brand for your organization [get in touch].

Our Services

We empower universities and research organizations to come alive. And we’ve put together the perfect set of skills to make that happen. Whatever we do is guided by craving for positive impact. We are the think:ers and the do:ers that you need to get your word out and to attract visibility for your research and your organization.

Podcast and Social Media Strategy development

The key to content success is to put the people that you want to reach center stage. You do this by crafting media strategies that create value for your target groups and that respects and leverages the current mobile social environment your target groups operate in day by day. We believe that a press release just does not do it anymore in today's fragmented media landscape, but that each target group has different media consumption preferences and therefore needs to be addressed differently. By crafting social media strategies that puts humans center stage and that respects different media consumption patterns, we support you in driving interaction, community building and establishing you as a brand.

Do you want to record a podcast, but you don’t want to do the post-production and distribution? Let us know. Do you have video material but you are to busy to turn it into reels and TikToks? Drop us a line, and we will take care of it.

Social media strategy implementation - How to do it

The best strategy isn’t worth anything, if it is implemented poorly. And let’s face it, academia is special. While there is great potential for outstanding content in academic institutions, the incentive structure to create content is oftentimes blurred. Hence, we support universities and research institutes in their journey to produce content and to overcome the institutional and organizational barriers inherent in academia.
