The innovative science addressed by KM3NeT – novel investigation of the most energetic processes in the Universe, understanding the fundamental properties of the mysterious neutrino and the exploration of the deep abysses of the sea – comprises subjects which fire the imagination and are of great interest to the general public. In the context of the KM3NeT-INFRADEV project an outreach and communication policy were developed and implemented.
Through the many different outreach channels (web pages, social media, public presentations, exhibitions, app games, hands on experimentation, art installations, TV, radio, citizen science, etc.) the project was promoted to the general public, particularly to inspire an interest in the KM3NeT science and science in general.
Promotional and educational material were developed; KM3NeT presence on social media and outreach events was enhanced; exhibit material, video and VCR applications were developed; and art/science collaboration or events were setup.
The developed material and information about events are collected in the ‘Outreach materials and events’ page.
Main results of the Outreach and communication policy can be found in the Project outputs section and comprise:
- D3.1 – The KM3NeT Outreach and Communications Strategic Plan
- D3.2 – Report on the Outreach Material For KM3NeT
- D3.3 – Report on the on-line communication of KM3NeT
- D3.5 – Report on Art/Science Outreach For KM3NeT
KM3NeT-INFRADEV was supported by the European Commission Framework Programme Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation action under grant agreement n. 739560.
