iNOVA Media Lab is an applied research laboratory at NOVA FCSH devoted to a transdisciplinary convergence of digital media and emerging technologies. The lab is organized around six research lines: immersive and interactive narrative, information visualization, digital methods and web platforms, science communication, digital journalism and the future of education.
Our mission is to translate scientific knowledge into real solutions for contemporary societies, addressing the problem of a broken intermediation between R&D institutions, communities and the industry.
The lab is thus geared to translational practices: we look beyond disciplinary boundaries, working in the intersection between social sciences and digital media technologies. By merging distinct mindsets, we build bridges between research units, classrooms, local communities and the industry in educational, scientific and entrepreneurial projects.
