Our emphasis is on setting up and exploring participation processes, design of education and providing technical know how. Together the partners are able to research and develop the knowledge and skills needed for the project deliverables in participation, education and outreach.
We will provide interactive models and education plans with instructions, sensors, models and maps. This requires knowledge, testing, experience and know how in the fields of education, participation, geographical information systems GIS, electronics and visualisation of data.
