The topics addressed are the following: 

  • Futures Now: The objective is to investigate sociocultural megatrends and macro-trends based on design as an indicator, and with futures research, co-creation, participatory and scenario planning methodologies.

  • Information visualization: We investigate on data visualization, visual communication formats and empathic communication formats in order to empower the citizen and facilitate new transdisciplinary forms of communication in the context of scientific research.
