Project description

This is not a typical research project, but is about the exploitation of a centre of expertise in science communication. This centre, embedded in the Communication Department of Ghent University, has a mission to stimulate efficient, effective and interactive science communication at Ghent University, on the one hand by facilitating and coaching others, on the other hand by own projects, with these final purposes: sensibilise, gain interest, inform and stimulate opinions.
