So you want to change the world?

Let's make a plan.

Want to make your research accessible to new audiences?

Compelling research stories make it possible for scholars to connect with new audiences, build collaborations, and provide decision makers at all levels with the information and perspective to make informed choices. At Hikma, we help scholars craft research narratives for op-eds, policy reports, grant proposals, and candid conversations with potential partners.

We've created a resource to help you tailor your research communications for new audiences and channels.
