Visualize Your Research

Join us for our exclusive summer series on data visualization. We’re offering an exclusive online talk by award-winning designer Giorgia Lupi, followed by an intensive student workshop lead by artist and professor of data visualization, Daniel Sauter. 

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, with collaboration from 1014, 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, Germany and the US. 


Offering inspiration and insights, information designer Giorgia Lupi will dive into her work and philosophy of “data humanism.”

Everyone is welcome to attend and can register here.
