Visualize your research

“A picture is worth more than a thousand words.” – Visualizing research results is more important than ever. Not only are we more used to images, graphs, and statistics in our environment, but well-designed images and illustrations can also convey and illuminate research results effectively – and persuasively!

The German Centers for Research and Innovation (DWIH) in New York and Tokyo are proud to present the summer program “Visualize Your Research” through which you can obtain the skills necessary to visualize both quantitative and qualitative research – while connecting with young researchers in Japan, the US, and Germany!
