Econnect Communication is Australia’s longest established science communication agency.
We are based in Brisbane and have been communicating creatively about science and the environment since 1995 across Australia and internationally.
We are a unique consultancy team in that we do all phases of science communication, from research to practice, and our communication research informs our practice to ensure excellence in meeting the needs of various groups.
We are science communication experts. We bring to all our projects:
Communication and engagement frameworks
National and international skills in developing, implementing and evaluating communication and engagement frameworks and strategies that work to change behaviours and policies, influence attitudes, raise awareness and exchange information
Writing, editing and design
Specialised skills and experience in writing, editing, design and publishing, including interpreting complex language and concepts into plain English, and writing and communicating visually for print and online
Skills and experience in liaising with project managers, project leaders, researchers, industry, decision-makers, government agencies, communities and policymakers
An understanding of the challenges involved in multi-disciplinary, participatory and collaborative environmental research programs
Experience in sourcing information from researchers and other experts, and refining it to suit specific individuals, groups and communities
We research, interview, and write stories about science and the people involved in science. We tailor each print, online, visual or verbal story to the needs of specific audiences.
We train researchers and managers in communication skills: media, presentations, writing, social media, photography, engagement, and strategy.
We work with researchers and managers to help them plan and implement their communication through strategies that are informed by risk communication principles.
