Research in the Media

Directly approached

You have been approached directly by the media to contribute your expertise as a researcher / scientist. For example for an interview by telephone, a request to response to a specific topic, but also a video or television recording or even a live broadcast.

How can we help you?

  • We are happy to discuss your core message with you and how you can choose the right words.
  • We are happy to give you tips and tricks to get your message in the media right and complete (online, paper, radio or TV).
  • We can read along with a first draft that is sometimes sent by written media in advance.

How can you help us?

  • Let us know that you have been asked by the media, and for which medium and also where or when it will be published/broadcast. We can then generate extra attention through social media.
  • If this is a magazine or newspaper, we would like to receive a link or PDF after publication, which we can distribute further.

Unless it is broadcast live, always ask the media if you can see the draft or which part is broadcast.

Please contact us directly

Media approaches the communication department

The communication department (TPM and TUD) is regularly contacted by various media with questions and requests. They are often looking for expertise in certain areas. Based on their question, we connect the media with the right scientists.

How can we help you?

  • We keep a list of scientists and their areas of special interest. Unfortunately, we cannot pass on what we do not know. And this means we can't refer to you either. Let us know what you are doing in short, using catchwords, so that we can connect them to you.
  • If we connect them to you, we will of course help you, if desired, choosing the right words.

How can you help us?

  • If you have contributed to a media item as a result of our referral, please let us know. We would also like to hear when it is published/broadcast. We can then generate extra attention through social media.
  • If it is a magazine or newspaper, we would like to receive a url or PDF to distribute further.

Unless it is broadcast live, always ask the media if you can see the draft or which part is broadcast.

  • Do not hesitate to contact us if you think something is newsworthy. We can work with you to see if and how we can share this.

What do we need for this?

  • A brief description of the research and / or substantive information about the research, including what makes it newsworthy (is it unique, groundbreaking, innovative?). Please in understandable language for the outside world,
  • An overview of participating partners,
  • Any available visual material (note copyright and / or portrait right),
  • Indication of possible milestones or relevant events.
