Media engagement

The QUASAR Group works with mainstream and scientific media to raise awareness of the importance of accelerator research for science, society and industry.

Bridging the knowledge gap with story telling:

  • ‘Plugging the skills gap’
  • ‘What’s the (anti)matter?’
  • What have particle accelerators ever done for us?’
  • Do you want to boldly go where science has not gone before?’

Broad news coverage on stories for science-engaged and general audiences raised awareness of Liverpool’s accelerator R&D and the projects the Group is involved in. Our stories have reached millions around the world.
