Conversation topics

Visibility of research can be achieved in different ways, from publishing in journals to using social media. Very often, the researchers wait until they have a result before they make the research visible.

Can you make the research visible before you have a specific result to show? What effect can visibility have on the results of your research? And how can one make research visible beyond publications in journals and books?

In this webinar, researchers at NTNU will discuss how to work to make their own research visible, from start-up to a given goal.
