To position drugs, biocidal products and medical devices in a scientifically sound and exciting way is a challenge, which SCICOM has been meeting for more than twenty years for us. SCICOM constantly generates new ideas and does not only identify trends but also drives them. In doing so, SCICOM links scientific content and strategic marketing in a unique way.

For many years, I have been working with SCICOM for our magazine “Die Schwester Der Pfleger”. I particularly appreciate the combination of high professional competence, good journalistic writing style and absolute reliability. All in all, an excellent collaboration!

Ms Niknam not only possesses a special feeling for language, but intuitively puts herself in complex subjects and people. The result is highly precise and brings out the bare essentials. From portraits and interviews to reports – one feels recognised and portrayed in a coherent manner.

Flexibility and a keen sense of topics and texts at a high journalistic level, particularly those of complex technical nature – all these qualities distinguish SCICOM. Besides that, we are impressed with the accuracy and credibility with that the agency finishes projects on schedule.

Support in recruiting medical practices for a scientific study
SCICOM developed an information campaign for the German Coalition for Patient Safety (APS) to support the recruitment of 200 medical practices to participate in a study on the implementation of critical incident reporting systems (CIRS).
Treatment errors and adverse events in patient care are complex issues and the communication with physicians requires a fine touch here. Hence, SCICOM’s campaign emphasised the added value for the target group, including the extensive and personal support during the study, regulatory compliance and improved patient safety. The campaign elements—for example websites with high conversion rates and printed documents—impress by an attractive imagery, clear messages and a stringent communication of the added value.
The development—from the briefing to the website’s launch—took no more than five weeks: APS was delighted with the quick and at the same time convincing implementation.
“Many thanks for your excellent support in recruiting participants for the CIRSforte project. Considering the limited time, the good result is all the more remarkable.
I thank you for the constructive, trusting and very successful co-operation.”
Hardy Müller, German Coalition for Patient Safety Secretary General
BODE SCIENCE CENTER | Lunchtime symposia
Specialist event | Media relations
Organisation of scientific events for the trade press
There are numerous ways to communicate scientific contents. When these contents are the research results of a company’s own R&D, a press conference of a special kind is a solution: hence, SCICOM regularly organises lunchtime symposia for the trade press for our long-standing customer, the BODE SCIENCE CENTER. The comprehensive service goes much further than the creation of the invitations and the press kit: SCICOM’s event experts develop the content-based concept, recommend appropriate speakers and supervise the event with lasting success:
The last lunchtime symposium on “Digital infection control—enhancing patient protection by eHealth” in Berlin attracted 27 journalists working for the relevant target media as well as representatives from politics and health care who wanted to listen to the renowned spokespeople from research and practice. Right at the heart: the key messages of our client—profitably embedded in a harmonised series of lectures.
Since its inception, the event has enjoyed an excellent reputation among the specialist editors, who attach great importance to scientifically sound contents with a focus on the added value and appreciate a professional event organisation.
PAUL HARTMANN AG | Press campaign for ASH road show
Media relations | Strategic advice
Accompanying public relations for a national campaign
The German “Aktion Saubere Hände” (Clean Hands Campaign; ASH)—a national campaign to improve the hand disinfection compliance in German healthcare facilities—last year for the first time conducted a national road show together with our customer, PAUL HARTMANN AG: the ASH van stopped at 32 German clinics in the name of hand hygiene. Our accompanying press relations work was not only about positioning HARTMANN as co-operation partner in the medical press: to intensively involve and support the participating clinics, SCICOM developed a press package for local media that was specifically tailored to their needs. In addition to high-content articles, including interviews, infographics, templates for press releases and visuals, SCICOM’S PR experts also personally supported the communications departments—and thus offered a consistent full-service package on behalf of the client.
