Trustworthy, Reliable and Engaging Scientific Communication Approaches


Kickoff meeting report

D7.1 describes the content and process of the first consortium meeting.

New SciCom video script and storyboard

D4.1 presents the script and storyboard for the videos and its potential variations.

Report with elaborated focus area descriptions and trending topic analysis

D1.3 will present the results of a trending-topics analysis on social media within three broad areas: public trust in data science and digital security; enviro-mental health; and future of work. The analysis will identify specific themes to be discussed in WP2 and WP3. These themes will be used as input in the experimental phase, in the Citizen Science Communication meetings, and in the production of a new focused scientific video to gauge citizen responses.

Meta-Analysis map: relevant factors shaping public perception of science communication

The meta-analysis map will create a visual understanding of how citizens interpret and frame scientific communication efforts. By means of an in-depth literature review, the map will help identify factors that may influence citizen perceptions and the way these factors may be interrelated. Special attention will be paid to the role of data visualization in shaping people's views. The meta-analysis map will serve as a basis for WP2 and WP3.

Risk management and quality assurance plan

D7.4, the Risk Management and Quality Assurance Plan will be created at the start of the project and distributed to all members of the consortium. It will detail the measures to enhance and maintain high quality work that adheres to the European Commission’s criteria, one of which is the deliverable review process.

Science communication and policy trend report and policy brief

D1.2 offers an overview of the way policymakers in selected areas (e.g. innovation policy; digital agenda) consume science communication (e.g. on which sources they rely upon; what topics interest them; which formats they prefer). Reflections gathered during individual interviews will be anonymised, analyzed and collated and used to help policymakers reflect on their consumption patterns and how these practices may influence their policy decisions. This report is a summary of trends but will include a short policy brief on the basis of this summary. This brief will then be updated in D6.6 on the basis of the project's experience.

White paper on best practices for producing science communication videos

D4.2 determines best practices for the creation of science communication videos, which will be included in the curriculum material of the MOOC.

Synthesis report of SciCom Communication Workshops

D2.3 is a synthesis report with lessons learned about elements’ orienting people’s perceptions and judgments about science communication. The qualitative data collected through postcards, recommendation sheets and the recording of some table discussions, will be used to draft the report.

Set of illustrated vignettes with questions

D3.1 includes a detailed description of the design of key elements of the factorial survey, that is, illustrated vignettes and questionnaire items.

Planned Events

This deliverable outlines the planned events for project work and dissemination activities. The first iteration is due in M3. The results of these events will be incorporated in WPs and deliverables that are connected to the specific events (for instance, workshops are part of WP2). The final consortium engagement and events report will include a list of all events organised by the consortium and external events visited by the consortium.

Data management plan

D7.2 is the data management plan. This plan outlines how data are to be handled during the project.

Fully developed scenario description for video scripting and development

D1.4 focuses on the development of improved science communication videos by producing enhanced scripts based on the analysis of existing videos.

Citizen SciCom workshop plan and scripting, instructions and recruitment strategy

D2.1 includes a selection of the videos which will be used in the workshops and the strategy used to identify and recruit workshop participants. Shared procedures for effective involvement of workshop participants in all three countries will also be described.

Overview of (Dis)Incentives for scientists to engage in SciCom

D1.5 describes the existing incentive (and disincentive) structure for scientists and other R&I stakeholders to engage in science communication. Attention will be paid to career opportunities and reputational incentives. A comparison between different academic systems will be carried out to identify beneficial and detrimental effects of different rewarding mechanisms in place in public and private research organizations in action. Gender dynamics will also be explored and acknowledged.

Blog section of project website live

TRESCA project will create a Partner and participant experience blog. The blog will help maintain continuous engagement with all the stakeholder groups. Contributions to the blog will describe how participants are progressing and how the implementation of project events is going.

Project website, social media accounts, and other communication channels

D6.1 is the project website, which represents the first and central communication channel for the TRESCA project and will act as the main source of information for interested parties and will help direct visitors to other communication channels.
