“As a scientist, you have to stick to what you know”

Nils Kok, researcher Maastricht University School of Business and Economics
"As a scientist, you have to stick to what you know - that is, conducting research and writing scientific articles about it. Afterwards, the Department of Press and Science Communication can spread your message more widely.And they do a very professional job.They’ll help you write a good press release and make sure it gets to the right people, within the Netherlands but also abroad.They keep track of which media pick it up, so you can see exactly what impact it has had. And they act as a kind of first line of defence to filter responses and questions from journalists for you.”
