Transform scientific results for public understanding
In Nijmegen, one aim is e.g. to make scientific results and existing data understandable for the general public. E.g. complex computer simulations will be transformed in comprehensible maps.

Among others, an exhibition boat for a dike reallocation measure in Nijmegen will be extended regarding contents related to climate change adaptation.
