News & Media Liaison
We work with academics and students across the University to publicise our research and achievements, in order to raise the profile of Lancaster via news and media channels. We can provide advice on general media matters and crisis management, as well as media training.

Media Engagement
We supply the media with expert opinion on breaking news stories via our Globelynx TV studio and our soundproof ISDN radio studio, allowing our academics to give live interviews to global media networks without having to leave campus. We also manage our relationship with The Conversation.
