Many scientists use Twitter to promote their research and many journalists use it to monitor them. Twitter has itself become a research ground. It is also used by scientific editors, universities, their peers. Above all, social networks allow them to position themselves, to make direct communications, and to attract visitors to their lab website, newsfeed or… conference.
Attending a conference is a great opportunity to share your results, connect with people in your domain, and learn new insights. A lot of effort goes into preparing presentations and these should be leveraged beyond the limited time and audience of the conference to make the most out of your time.
We will share with you insights on how to build a Twitter strategy to increase your reach before, during and after the event, and to connect with other attendees and expand your network.
Emilie Pralong, Founder at RADAR RP
Emilie has built a range of competences on top of her brevet in public relations and two specializations, one in strategic writing and the other in social media. She started her career in 2007 at the Brain Mind Institute of the EPFL, followed by the National Center of Competence in Research Synapsy.
For five years, she has closely monitored scientific research, with a particular focus on neurosciences. Working at the heart of the scientific and technological hub of the Leman lake region was a fascinating experience. When Emilie joined the Lausanne-based public relations agency Cadence Conseils in 2012 - first as a project manager and then as head of mandates -, she brought along a strong desire to support meaningful projects in the fields of science and health.
After seven years of external PR experience with the agency, she founded her own company to dedicate herself fully to her favourite areas of interest.
