Information is Beautiful! Visualising Research Competition


Designers, graphic artists, software developers, programmers and anyone with an interest in data visualisation to produce images are being invited to show how public funding contributes to research in the UK.

Key data from the seven Research Councils is now available in one place – Gateway to Research – enabling anyone to interrogate grants awarded, publications, people and organisations. The purpose of the challenge is to develop visualisations of this data that can be easily understood by the public.

Displaying the data in an accessible way will have benefits for the designer, stakeholders,policy makers, other funding bodies and the media.

Information on the competition, being run by AHRC, BBSRC and the British Library can be found here
