Transversal Action of Communication and Scientific Promotion
Scientific promotion and communication are grouped together in a transversal action of Résif. They are closely linked and firstly concern the dissemination of all scientific results and also the communication of these results to a wider public, with particular attention to applications in the field of natural hazards and natural resources. These functions are intended for scientists and the general public and also serve as a contact and information link with all actors in society, in particular public authorities and education.
Since September 2018, this component has been led by a communication manager whose actions support but do not replace the communication work carried out by the members of the Consortium-Résif . As Résif is a research infrastructure, “operational” missions – such as alert systems, for example – remain the responsibility of the actors working on such missions.
The transversal action of communication and scientific promotion is in charge of defining Résif’s global strategy in terms of communication and image, as well as implementing actions towards different internal and external audiences. It also participates in the promotion of Résif’s data and products.
These missions are part of a four-year communication and promotion plan approved by the Résif board of directors in June 2018.
The first actions undertaken within the framework of the communication plan were the modernization of the logo and the creation of a general graphic line for the printed and web supports. At the same time, the communication and promotion action has led to the project of a presentation video in French and in English. The Résif presentation brochure has been updated and an open archive has been created to host photos, posters, videos and other documents illustrating the life of the infrastructure. A Résif products repository, complementary to the various data portals, is also being created.
This website, published in June 2020, is the first result of the website redesign project, which concerns all the sites in the resif.fr domain. The Transverse Action Communication and Valorization works daily to update and enrich this website and has completed the website of the Mobile Seismological Network Sismob in December 2020.
