From understanding evolution to getting a grip on how cities contribute to pollution, University of East Anglia research ranges far and wide – it’s just the sort of place where we like to work!
Over an 18 month period, we worked on more than 20 stories for UEA. Around half of these achieved national media coverage and many also attracted extensive international and specialist coverage as well. Our story on the evolution of the great tit’s beak was covered by the Daily Mail, the Guardian, the Times and the Telegraph, as well as pieces in Scientific American and The Washington Post. Elsewhere, our press release describing a city-level approach to tackling climate change was covered by Reuters, while a story about how the giardia parasite makes us poorly was covered by the BBC…..And finally…our story about same-sex mating in flour beetles was picked up by outlets including the Daily Mail and the Telegraph.
