Welcome to the Kiel Science Communication Network – KielSCN

As a joint science communication research centre we want to develop new approaches for science communication by focusing on information visualizations and their perception. For this, the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education, the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design and Kiel University joint forces: with our combined expertise in the fields of educational sciences, information design and innovative health research we aim to take visual science communication to the next level.

In addition to the academic institutions, media partners from science communication practice such as Spektrum der Wissenschaft, kurzgesagt.org and the Nordeutscher Rundfunk as well as the non-profit organization opencampus.sh are involved. These partnerships will help to further implement our research projects and to establish the KielSCN as a central hub for participatory, visual science communication in the long run.

Last but not least we want you to get involved. We want to learn more about your needs and preferences to develop information visualizations that actually fit them. Therefore we invite you to be part of the process helping us test and improve our designs. In return you and others benefit from products that offer information on health-related topics of highest relevance for citizens and societies.
