What do professionals say
Jorge Beira, Ph.D., Postdoctoral fellow, ETH, Zurich, Switzerland
“TalkCoast is a promising new platform that makes it easier for scientists to connect – something that you’d think should already be available. It is a great way to match people who are already planning to travel with institutions where they can present their science. It’s win-win and in my experience it was wonderful to meet new people and learn about their interests too! I totally recommend TrickleS!”
Melonie Walcott, DrPH, Assistant Professor, The Sage Colleges, New York, USA
“I see TalkCoast as an opportunity to share my expertise and research with institutions and organizations that I would not have had access to. By scheduling a presentation while traveling for business or pleasure, I can network with researchers in my field and explore future collaborations. In addition, as a scholar originally from the Caribbean (Jamaica), it is an excellent opportunity for me to reach out to my home institutions whenever I visit”
Fanuel Muindi, Ph.D., Co-founder, Stem Advocacy Institute, Cambridge, USA
“TalkCoast provides an access point for more science dissemination. The platform has a lot of potential and with continued development, it has a shot of having an impact in the scientific community and beyond. Look forward to watching it grow”.
Jelena Erceg, PhD, Postdoctoral fellow, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA
'TalkCoast is an innovative and transformative platform that brings scientists together to share their research. It provides an excellent opportunity to combine your trip with giving a talk to the scientific community and networking. It also makes the search for that next speaker at your institute more effective. In my experience, I enjoyed interacting with people, hearing about their research, and exchanging ideas. I would highly recommend this platform, and am excited to follow its future developments.'
