  • From local to international media: how to get impact in international general-interest media. 
  • Social Media for scientists and/or for the general public: common strategies.
  • Public relations and institutional contacts management.
  • Internal communication: when communication becomes membership feeling.
  • Scientific output: publications, citations, h-index: how to match actual needs with available resources.
  • Open access and repositories: special clauses and obligations in EU projects.
