Create a communication toolkit that serves as an interface in the transmission of the scientific knowledge generated by the project towards the scientific community itself, the educational community and the dissemination of health issues that affect the general interest of society.


Study the tools for collecting, interpreting and visualising data. Semiotic analysis to measure the effectiveness of visualisation of data. Co-creation sessions with the research teams to fuse scientific connection and visual expressiveness. Process of transformation of the scientific language into the visual and intuitive language.

Expected Results

Theoretical framework that supports the systematisation of visual language, graphic hierarchies, three-dimensional construction and virtual interaction.
