KNEIA: Bridging Science and Society through Communication
KNEIA grew by offering consultancy services for obtaining funding for research projects, leveraging the extensive experience of its founders in the European Union's Framework Program for research and innovation. For years, we have assisted numerous researchers and teams in accessing the necessary resources to conduct innovative and transformative research.
However, during our long journey in both the public and private research fields, we realized that there was an even greater need in the field of scientific communication and valorisation. The academic background, skills, and vital inclinations of the founders provided us with the strongest foundation for this strategic shift in KNEIA.
Today, KNEIA has evolved into a comprehensive partner in scientific communication and valorisation. Our focus ranges from creating effective communication strategies for research projects to curating and presenting data in an accessible and meaningful way to the general public. We help researchers tell their stories convincingly and maximize the impact of their work on society. We provide organizations with the necessary support to identify and navigate paths for knowledge transfer.
We comprise a team of professionals passionate about science and communication, sharing a vision of the relevance of science in the economy and society, and possessing the skills needed to bring you closer to your audience.
We look forward to introducing your work to the world!
