AlphaGalileo is a business-to-business science news service was launched in 1998 prompted by the popularity of Eurekalert. AlphaGalileo was created as a result of UK government efforts to promote public engagement with science.
The news service, which is moderated, is run by the independent not-for-profit organisation, AlphaGalileo Foundation Ltd on a mix of government grants, commercial sponsorship and advertising. It takes press releases about research developments from over 2 000 contributors and distributes them to more than 5 300 journalists in some 85 countries.
