iSLI, the Livingston based Scottish technology transfer institute has appointed Rovolver PR to handle its press and communications strategy.

The Edinburgh-based PR agency has been tasked to handle the press account following a competitive pitch.

Dr Mark Begbie, director of iSLI, explained: "We were looking for something different from our PR and Revolver came up with the goods. Any organisation that wants to run an effective press and communications strategy today has to look upon online news sites, blogs and social media services as an essential part of the mix and their demonstrable expertise in the field was a key factor in our final decision."
