Labs on social media: The most followed research departments in the Nordic region

Which research institutions have a good social media presence in the Nordic region?

The people who run the social media accounts for research institutions hardly ever get credit. All the congratulations, all the success stories, and all the bragging rights, accrue to researchers.

This is a shame. And I want to do something about it!

Because research institutions’ social media accounts have a vital role to play in the scientific ecosystem. And the people behind them are often anonymous, hiding behind account names like Helsus, CWS and UiB Ocean.

For many of the institutions on this list, it has taken years to build up their position and following

They lend status and credibility to their institution’s scientists, and they make it easier for new scientists to enter established scientific networks. And through their large followings they take up a central position in disseminating new science.

The nodes on this image are research institutions’ Twitter accounts, the lines signify following. The coloured clusters correspond to the four Nordic countries that have been examined.

Following on from my TwiLi Index of top scientists, I am now releasing a list with top research institutions on Twitter in the Nordic region (minus Iceland). It is only Twitter, I am afraid, as that was the data I could get. I know! Many institutions also have a large LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube presence, but this is what it is right now.

Twitter (or ‘X’) has been given a battering over the last year with the takeover of Elon Musk and his recent changes. But it is still a platform where scientific institutions showcase what their affiliated scientists are working on, boost their scientists’ network, and help spur on collaborative ideas.

For many of the institutions on this list, it has taken years to build up their position and following. They use their Twitter accounts to show what their scientists are doing to funding agencies, get more applicants for researcher positions, and to be a force for positive change by fostering contacts with media, politicians, and the general public.

More importantly, the institutions’ Twitter accounts work as network hubs for the institutions’ own associated scientists, making it easier for individual scientists to find and follow each other, and thereby increasing their own reach.

Unsung heroes

Research institutions’ accounts are sometimes run by a member of staff who has the role as communications officer, center administrator, research assistant, or even student assistant. Sometimes they are run as a curation circle, with scientists taking turns to keep the account active.

I administer an institution’s account, but I lack inspiration and fear looking uninformed. What should I do?

Workshop participant

The people who run the accounts – let us call them ‘the curators’ – are often participants on my social media workshops, and they have given me insight into the challenges that they face.

Curators of institutional social media accounts may, for example, have a different expertise than the research field of their institution. So they have to uphold a regular volume of posts from the account in spite of the fact that their own expertise within the field is limited.

As a curator on one of my workshops put it:

“I administer an institution’s account, but I lack inspiration and fear looking uninformed. What should I do?”

A research coordinator who curates a popular institutional account told me that she  “lacks the scientific knowledge to tweet, and even to assess the value of someone’s tweets to retweet from the institutional account. But I have to do the best I can.”

The people who run the institutional accounts perceive their outsider status, relative to their scientist colleagues, as a disadvantage.

But, I tell them, it can be an advantage!

Less prior knowledge of a specific field means that you have an intuition of when something is hard to understand. You thereby easily become a link between the scientists and their peers, the institution’s stakeholders, and the general public. Apart from this many curators have other specialty skills, sometimes in the field of communication.

So let’s get on with it!

Here below are the top 100 institutions in terms of Twitter following in the Nordic region.

If you are a part of the Nordic science and research community, the institutions (see below) can serve as inspiration for new contacts. Why not follow them?

Are you not on the list? I have almost certainly missed a few active research institutions who have large followings and influence on Twitter. If your institution’s account should be on this list, please email me on An updated list will be released soon thereafter.

I thank my good colleague Lasse Hjort Madsen who helped me extract the raw data for this list!
