Visual communication of research is becoming increasingly relevant. Summarising findings in a clear manner is crucial to pass the message to all relevant audiences, from other researchers to policymakers, hence to maximise impact on governance.
With the support of the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account and in collaboration with the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute, in Easter term 2016 we are organising a series of events to raise the profile of visual communication among researchers in conservation and environmental governance, and across the university.
The series consists of a seminar with renowned experts from the industry and academia, a workshop, and a visual communication clinic:
