I'm writing a Personal Statement and I need to say something like "this research topic is hot in both academic society and industrial society". Are these phrases correct?


I might say, "[…] in academia and in industry […]."


Possibly using "...in both academic and industrial circles" would be better, but it may depend on the wider context of the statement.

Instead of 'circles' you could also use 'groups.'


Another possibility is (with)in the academic community. Not sure if you can write industrial community though.
