Scientific expertise for all desks

Everyone knows something or other, but who really knows what’s what? We provide fast access to reliable assessments by proven experts in the field.

You need quotations from a researcher but can’t reach anyone?

You need to find out whether a research result is really headline material?

You need specialist knowledge but can’t read umpteen journals?

You need robust facts to clarify contradictory statements?

SMC will help you by delivering


  • expert statements

  • fact sheets

  • press briefings.

SMC is supported in this by hundreds of experts who are registered on our database. Every expert in this pool is hand-picked. They have specialist knowledge and are renowned in their fields. Currently, most experts are from the fields of medicine and the life sciences, environment and climate as well as energy, mobility and technology. The list of topics we prioritise is constantly updated and public issues are added – most recently, e-cigarettes, automated driving and enhanced DNA analysis. This is how we guarantee the relevance, quality and diversity of both the database and our portfolio.
