The Sci-Vi initiative cultivates a community around engagement with visual research communication and dissemination, knowledge exchange, professional and academic matchmaking.



We initiate research and development within the area of science visualisation and we continuously experiment with new formats. We are visual storytellers, researchers, producers, journalists, Ph.D. students etc., all interested in developing and expanding visual science communication in society and in building a bridge between the visual industry and research environments
