Consulting Services



We analyse and optimise internal and external communication in research institutions– the involvement of peer groups or partners from other institutions, or dialogue at an early stage with stakeholders is just one example.


Innovative Communication

More than ever, science communication requires new methods for dialogue, especially for online media. Together with your institution, inscico develops a strategy for the usage of social media.

Your benefit: New methods of communication target emotions and provide valuable information about target audiences.



If your research institution knew, what your research institution knows – the best innovation topics usually stay undetected because they do not reach the communications department.

A view from the outside helps. inscico topic-scouts search for current public interest topics, embed these in social debates and  prepare these for the media.

Your benefit: Topic-scouting utilises unused communication potential. This also frequently results in new research ideas.


Optimising Research Proposals

Organisations which support research do not only require excellent scientific information, but also place increasing importance on a detailed explanation of both the research goals and a conclusive communication concept. inscico advises on the development of your  concept for your formal research proposal. In English-speaking countries it is standard practice to consult journalists when drawing up the proposal.

Your benefit: Comprehensible, conclusive and exciting research proposals have a higher chance of funding.
