Science in Public

Science in Public want to know about your Europe-Australia research collaborations

Science in Public is a science communication and public relations business based in Melbourne, with a core team of twelve staff and associates around Australia. That makes them Australia’s largest, non-government, science communication business.

They re helping the European Union Delegation and the French Embassy in Canberra to pull together a list of collaborative research involving Australia and EU countries.

Science in Public are interested in the full suite of research from basic science right through to research that’s close to a commercial application or has achieved a practical outcome here and in Europe.

The resulting list will be shared online. They’ll then write up a selection of the stories for two publications: a collection of EU and a collection of French collaborations. They’ll be published online and presented to a meeting of EU and Australian science agencies.

While collaborations with research powerhouses such as France and Germany are important, they would also like to show the full breadth of Europe’s ties with Australia by also including examples of some of the smaller member states leading the way with innovation and technology, such as Estonia and Malta.

For reference, the 28 current members of the EU are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

So please let them know your most exciting European collaborations—including those with smaller nations—and they will compile them and share them with the Delegation.

Last year Science in Public asked for stories on Indonesian-Australian collaboration. You can see the result of that call at

You can also see the collections of Japan and US stories at

If you know of partnerships in a similar vein, please contact Niall on or his colleague Michael on with some information about the work and the details of the scientist they can talk to (if it’s not you).

Note: Science in Public are not asking you to write stories for them. They just need a headline or project name, the names of the organisations involved, a contact and a link for further information.
