Providing information outside the faculty
There are various methods of disseminating information about our research and educational programmes outside the faculty.
Press and media
News dissemination can be carried out with the help of press releases, articles, columns, film clips, news tips, posts on social media. Sometimes through different channels for the same piece of news. The Faculty Communications Section handles all press contacts and can be reached at press [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se
Events for the public
Research Day (Forskningens dag)
The Research Day (Forskningens dag) is organsed every year in November on a special theme each year. This is an opportunity for researchers to reach out on Research Day by becoming a co-organiser.
Other events organised by the Faculty of Medicine include the Knowledge Club (Kunskapskrogen), Health Science Day (Hälsovetenskapens dag) and the science days for high school students (NMT-dagarna, together with the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering).
When do you need to communicate?
In order to find out if you need to communicate, start by thinking through what you wish to achieve with your communications and who your target group is.
This is a template for a communication plan which is easy to use. It contains useful questions to ask yourself before starting up any information activities.
