This is the blog created and maintained by the teams of researchers involved in the three-year projet EMAPS (Electronic Maps to Assist Public Science), funded by the European Commission in the FP7 “science in society” programme. The project started in November 2011, so has this blog (see Objectives).
It is not meant as a communication tool about the results of the projet : their dissemination is an integral part of the research we carry out and is being done through a interactive process with the communities we want to address. It is rather one of the many tools we use to collaborate with each other since the teams are based in different places in Europe (see Partners), so it gives a day-to-day view of the issues the project is busy with, which are at the crossroad of different research fields’ interests : STS (science, technology and society), controversy mapping, climate change adaptation, ageing, communication design, data vizualisation, digital methods and social innovation.
