"Holding a PhD in communications and being a communication manager, I'm keen to maintain a close relationship with universities. Feedback from practical experience can provide impulses for the scientific research. In turn, the research results will help us in our daily work. PR magazines frequently publish articles which turn out to be commissioned research without intellectual depth and valid data. We need in-depth analyses and forecasts with a scientific claim. This kind of research can support the development of communication areas in the long term."
