Communicating Research

Communication and dissemination activities arising from EPA-funded research are strongly encouraged and monitored throughout the lifetime of funded projects. EPA-funded research is communicated to a wide range of audiences, while ensuring that the underpinning science is not compromised. Significant societal and behavioural change is required to respond to climate change and to environmental threats and opportunities.

Communication Guidelines

The EPA Research Programme has published a number of guidelines and tools to assist with the preparation and on-going evaluation of project communications. The guidelines will also assist in focussing on the key messages of the project, and in improving communication between policy makers, scientists and other stakeholders. The documents can be accessed via the following links:

EPA Research Programme Communication Activities

Every year, we both run and attend a number of environmental research events, publish a range of research reports, send newsletters and short updates to our subscribers, and are active on social media, particularly Twitter.
