For Students and Researchers in the Sciences
SciRio is the first and exclusive platform in India that provides the complete ecosystem to upskill, find existing resources and opportunities, and the right network, all in one place for anyone interested in communicating science in any form. The SciComm Hub is a multimedia blog space where you can build your portfolio and communicate science by writing, sketching, making multimedia content or even drawing comics. We encourage you to explore different ways and formats of communicating science to a varied range of audiences.
For Science Communicators
If you are an individual science communicator trying to find interesting projects to work on, we are always looking for people like you. You can join us on projects we are working on or bring to the table any novel ideas you always wanted to work on but never had the bandwidth for it.

As a scholar of science, I always understood that science belongs to everyone and that it should not be confined within the walls of laboratories. After a few years in scientific research, I delved into communicating science to people beyond academia and founded SciRio. We need an independent, free-willed platform with a vision that science communication is a collaborative effort and to execute it effectively. I envision democratising the field of science communication in India. To inspire students and researchers in the sciences to go out and talk science beyond their professional circles and support them in honing their science communicating skills.
