Centre for Science, Health and Data Communication Research
The Centre for Science, Health and Data Communication Research focuses on the urgent need for better science, health and data communication through ambitious cross-disciplinary collaborations.
Building on the University’s existing successes, the centre brings together experts from various disciplines – media and communication, computer and data sciences, health and medical sciences, environment sciences, business studies, psychology and sociology – to research and pioneer interdisciplinary solutions for contemporary communication challenges.
