Where Ideas grow


Digital Media Science Communication Hackathon

September 23-27 in Porto, Portugal


The EMERGENCE Digital Media Science Communication Hackathon offers a unique opportunity to delve into science communication. During an intensive week, you will get to work in a truly interdisciplinary team with highly skilled professionals in art, programming, communication and research to develop a digital science communication project. You will get to develop and broaden your skills, be provoked to see new perspectives and by the end of the week there will be an innovative communication project to be launched in a public event.


This event brings together scientists, techies, artists, and science communicators, to collaboratively create digital media based projects that communicate complex concepts in scientific research.
In this intensive 5 day-long event participants are immersed in a collaborative setting where they are assisted through the process of exploring various digital media technologies (e.g. film, interactive technologies, VR) with a focus on creating stories for both linear and experiential formats. Throughout the event each team is assigned a mentor, who takes the producer role of the team, ensuring that each team is well on track and provided with the needed resources.

All credits of the work belong to the teams.


Applications until September 10.
