Everyday our digital minds are shaped with unlimited flux of informations and social practices that we need to understand better to make bright choices based on right sources of knowledge.

The capacity to gather, critically analyze large volume of information and map them is crucial.

By retaking power over informational contents with our analysis and reports, main actors have the opportunity to adapt to new challenges and face the opportunities, impacts and risks raised by technologies.
