Understanding and communicating scientific data in an interactive and attractive way

The ParCos project aims to improve science communication by engaging people in the translation of scientific data and information. The project develops tools and methods to support citizens in carrying out, communicating and discussing science in a participatory way.

To this end, VRT Innovation explores how data-driven stories can present data in an interactive and attractive way through media, and which tools are needed to support this process.
