The new company will offer soft-skills trainings to research groups and institutions worldwide via the Canvas learning management system.

Elevate Scientific Academy (ESA), launched today, aims to offer high-end, scalable and interactive e-courses on scientific writing and publishing, grant writing, and science communication to researchers around the globe. The courses will satisfy an important need for high-quality trainings in the so-called soft skills that are vital for planning, funding, conducting and disseminating research.

ESA is a daughter company of Elevate Scientific (ES), a science-communication consultancy with 8 years’ experience of training researchers and communicators in soft-skills. ESA’s vision is to harness the power of education and engagement to help researchers worldwide to respond to scientific, technological and societal grand challenges.

ESA’s first offering is our e-course on Scientific writing and publishing with impact , which is available to research groups and institutions from this year. The course will be offered via the Canvas Learning Management Platform. ESA’s online training solution is distinguished by five key ingredients:

  • content and instructional design founded on robust frameworks and extensive R&D and testing

  • an easily navigable and highly functional learning management system

  • rich content and interactivity including everything from video lectures to peer-to-peer feedback

  • exceptionally high production value of videos, audio and web content

  • customizability to cater to the different needs of research groups and institutions
