The National Science Communication Institute (nSCI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity dedicated to advancing science by helping improve science communication.
Scientific efforts can fall short of their goals for a number of reasons having nothing to do with science. One of these reasons is typically underfunded communications efforts. nSCI helps in a variety of ways, from designing and managing marketing efforts, helping enroll study participants in life sciences research, and reaching out to affected communities in social science research, to helping facilitate internal communications with research teams, and helping communicate important findings to the general public.
There are eight main divisions in nSCI, each managing a different aspect of science communications. nSCI may also host events in the future to try to pull together some of the many experts who are already working in this field but who may not be currently in contact with one another.
