Evolving Think Tanks Series 2017


The short course, Creating effective data visualisations, starts June 1.

Data  visualisations are playing an increasingly important role in today’s information-rich society. This is especially true among think tanks, where translating complex ideas and data into accessible and relevant information is at the heart of what they do.

Jeff Knezovich, course facilitator


The On Think Tanks School offers series of short and long courses especially tailored for the think tank community.

These courses draw from over a decade of research and practice from experts on the role of evidence in policy, think tanks, and civil society organisations.

The series has been put together by Vanesa Weyrauch, Director of the On Think Tanks School, and co-funder of Politics & Ideas.+
