Science in Public has no connection with Shac Communications.
A story in the Herald Sun and other News Ltd papers on 1 October 2016 mentioned Shac Communications and their work for the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science. http://bit.ly/2dAtLYA
For the past decade Science in Public has been the lead agency commissioned to promote the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science. In 2008 the Industry department commissioned Shac to assist with the Prizes as part of their larger contract with the department and we collaborated with them for a couple of years. They’ve not been involved for the past five years.
