Communication in Science is a company specialized in science communication, based in Geneva, Switzerland. We provide know-how, analysis and consulting in topics related to science, technology, the environment and public health. Our expertise is to communicate complicated concepts and topics in a clear way, and to bridge the gap between scientists and various audiences.
The core team of Communication in Science is able to analyse topics, create illustrated documents, develop web pages and animations, and interpret statistical data to help in decision making:
Pierre-André Magnin is a biology graduate specialised in solar energy and science communication. He is a seasoned science writer as well as an experienced designer of online graphics, animations and layout. He was Chief Editor of the Swiss National Science Foundation’s magazine Horizons/Horizonte (which he helped launch) during 10 years. He is the co-creator of energie-environnement.ch / energie-umwelt.ch, an information website that received the Roberval Multimedia Prize in 2009. He also created the Garden Charter, a pledge system designed to protect biodiversity in urban areas.
