Create a visual summary

The key to making your research understood and collaborating is to speak plainly and to adopt a targeted approach to dissemination in short and accessible formats. This is the mantra of Research Retold.

“The discussion on ‘before creating my visual summary’ will not just be good for creating the visual summary but also good for thinking about how to communicate my research in general.”

I feel much more confident about getting started writing a visual summary now and have the software to do it.”
