Scientific Poster for Mar­ine Mi­cro­bi­o­logy

Dive into the deep sea with our new Scientific Poster for the Max Planck In­sti­tute for Mar­ine Mi­cro­bi­o­logy in Bremen. The interactive poster shows all research habitats of their microbiology resarch. While wandering over the seabed, one can dive deeper into the individual habitats, study the organisms and learn about the processes. Elaborate 3D animations show the individual habitats and enable an almost photorealistic underwater landscape. Dive into it!

Scientific Poster – Mobile Version

For the very first time, we bring our interactive scientific poster on mobile devices. This is perfect to show your scientific research at conferences abroad or to share and explain your topics to a smaller group of colleagues. For us at Science Communication Lab, this flexibility in different media devices is a milestone in the development of exciting scientific communication formats.

The shown interactive scientific poster is called Digital Meta and was developed for the CRC Metaorganism at Christian-Albrechts University Kiel.
It shows microbiome model organisms and explains how hosts do interact with bacteria. More to come about this fascinating research soon…

Scicom Lab @Hannover Messe 2018

How does excellent design support scientific research?
Tom Duscher will give a talk about science and design collaboration at Hannover Messe on Thuesday, 26th 2018.
At the Kiel University stand the scientific poster about „Ocean Observation” that we created in collaboration with the Cluster of excellence „Future Ocean” will be shown. It’s great to see that the Minister-President of Schleswig Holstein Daniel Günther was informed about ocean research by the speaker of the cluster Martin Viesbeck using the interactive poster.
There are a lot of interactive touch displays to see at Hannover Messe, but most of them showing website browsers or video collections. So there is a lot of opportunities to create convincing presentations. The Science Communication Lab supports you to transform your topics into vivid interactive applications.

Welcome on bord, Susanne!

Since August 2017 Susanne Landis joined our team. Her position is co-financed by the Innovation Assistance Program of the European Regional Developing Fund and WTSH Schleswig Holstein. Now we are designers and scientists which gives us even more understanding of science communication needs. Susanne has all the insights of academic and scientific processes and is a doctorate evolutionary biologist. But even better: She has experience in teaching and pedagogical concepts as well as illustration skills!

Visualized 2016 conference in New York

We had a great time at the visualized conference in New York at 6th October. In the new building of Parsons New School at 5th Avenue an audience of about 500 people interested in the communication of information and data visualization came together to listen to 16 speakers.  It was a perfect overview about the  current  and pioneering topics and trends in the visualization and communication scene and we are so proud of having been part of it!  It turned out that the subject of science communication found a new meaning for many designers and scientists and we had interesting discussions about our projects.

Evaluation at MS Wissenschaft

The renown Karlsruhe Institute for Technology and their research unit for science communication examinend how presentators benefit by the support of our Interactive Sciencific Poster. At the same time the audiences attendance was evaluated with eyetrackers. That all happend at the exhibition boat MS Wissenscchaft with participation of the marine scienentists Prof. Sebastian Krastel from Christian Albrechts University in Kiel and with Judith Engler, Oskar Oldorf and Prof Christian Berndt from Geomar, Helmholz Centre for ocean research. Thank you very much for your support! Now we are very excited to learn about the insights of this evaluation.
