Risk Communication

Ongoing is a creative collaboration between social theorists, documentary makers and environmental scientists. Arising from the Risk Communication sub-group, PhD student Michela Cortese (who is doing a theory-practice PhD on risk communication and fictional/factual narratives), won two collaborative grants with Dr Enrico Andreoli (PI, College of Engineering, Swansea Univ.) to make a short, persuasive documentary for policy-makers and funders to explain new technology:

a. From National Research Network in Advanced Engineering and Materials and Sêr Cymru for funding to make a documentary that persuasively explains carbon capture to policy makers (Jun 2015, awarded £1,006);

b. From Engineering and Physical Science Research Council. Grant ref: EPSRC: EP/N009525/1. Polymer-promoted Cu-catalysed conversion of CO2 to CH4 (2015 - 2017 (£600 for documentary. Overall grant: £99,422).
