Visualisation of Academic Research

A Kick-start Award in partnership with NESTA and the Alliance for Useful Evidence, Dr David Levy and Professor Robert Picard will convene a series of workshops with journalists, policy organisations, the business community, and civil society organizations to address issues surrounding the visual presentation of academic research results and academic knowledge.

The project aims to cultivate better understanding amongst academics of the nature of the demand for visualised research and the ways in which it can improve media coverage, public understanding of complex issues, and use of academic research in practice.
