CompaSciences 2.0

Summary

CompaSciences is an innovative web platform for the semantic, computational and qualitative analysis of media content, developed to help journalists navigate the constant flow of information they face on a daily basis and identify relevant scientific experts for their stories. CompaSciences 2.0 is the continuation of the “Scientific Expertise and Media Discourse” project. It aims to consolidate the in-depth computational and qualitative analysis of the software, to identify experts from French-speaking Swiss universities who are not involved in the media and to better integrate into the daily lives of journalists. They will thus have access to an intuitive tool for putting current events into perspective, enabling them to create new stories in a quick and relevant way by relying on the expertise of scientists in French-speaking Switzerland.
