Doing it Together Science (DITOs)
DITOs is a European-wide project focused on promoting change in the way the public engages with science and innovation through Citizen Science.
WeGovNow uses innovative technologies to overcome limitations of existing digital tools in the context of citizen reporting, e-participation, and citizen-government communication.
Challenging RISK (Resilience by Integrating Societal and Technical Knowledge) is concerned with socially integrated mitigation of multiple structural risks in the urban environment.
Researchers in ExCiteS have created bespoke technologies to address the challenges around collecting, sharing and visualising geographic information with a variety of communities.
