CHASM Lunch and Learn: Making effective use of infographics Communicate your findings beyond academia and maximise the impact of your research

Tuesday 1 December 2020 (13:00-14:00)

Helen Harris:

In this virtual networking session delivered by Mihaela Gruia, Research Communicator and Director of Research Retold, we learned how she helped hundreds of academics communicate their research findings in accessible and visual ways. 

Mihaela shared case studies and insights into the research communication process, including a 3-year collaboration with Professor Andy Lymer on the Social Housing and Wellbeing Research Project. 

Mihaela explained: 

  • What the collaborative process looks like to turn a 30-page technical report into a 4-page digestible visual document 
  • The benefits of communicating your research in static and interactive formats to different audiences beyond academia 
  • How you can include research communication support in your grant applications and pathways to impact
