Our Portfolio


This service provides scientific expertise and assessments delivered by our experts on current events – as a guide, as journalistic raw material, as a basis for further research of your own.

in Context

When studies and specialist publications deserve public attention but are still under embargo this product provides assessments and facts prepared by experts for SMC’s database even before the embargo has been lifted.


When events are confusing, this format helps you to have the right facts up your sleeve and ask the relevant questions–a ‘crib sheet’ with background information.


Direct access to scientists allows journalists to put their own questions to the experts. SMC organises press conferences–at the SMC office in Cologne, by phone or video conference.
