Kudos (www.growkudos.com), the award-winning service for accelerating research impact through strategic communications management, is delighted to announce the appointment of Emma Dennis as Academic Outreach Manager.
Emma joins Kudos from the Web of Science Group at Clarivate Analytics, where she worked extensively with both university and publisher clients in the research sector, providing data tools and workflow management solutions.
“Emma’s arrival is perfectly timed, as we’re fast approaching the launch of our new service – helping researchers collaborate to plan, action, measure and report on communications around their work,” says Michael Tadman, Sales Director at Kudos. “Pre-launch outreach has generated a high level of interest from research groups, departments, schools, faculties and funders, so Emma’s strong knowledge of the sector will enable her to hit the ground running in helping our prospective customers understand how we can support their engagement, dissemination and impact activities.”
“I know from my past roles just how much funders’ and institutions’ expectations around research communication have grown in recent years,” adds Emma Dennis. “It’s a smart move for Kudos to expand into an end-to-end platform, supporting everything from pre-award communications planning, to measuring engagement efforts and tracking impact potential. I’m thrilled to be part of such a respected and innovative team.”
