Event Details

Sci-Vi Seminar 2023

When research communication moves out of text-heavy publications and becomes visual productions – a seminar on Science Visualization

What can it look like when research dissemination moves out of text-heavy publications and becomes visual expressions? When the research format moves out of books and publications and becomes visual, where does it go?

At this years Sci-Vi seminar we will look at different platforms for animated research communication.

We have chosen to present a preponderance of cases about climate and environmental productions as examples, but the day is relevant for all research- and knowledge fields and – environments as well as visual storytellers, animators, illustrators, producers and people in the visual industry in general.

Remember to book tickets for the Sci-Vi screening as well.


Sci-Vi is supported by Vision Denmark and the Ministry of Higher Education and Science
