Project Description

CASC is a project funded under the EU's FP7 Coordination and support actions (Science in Society Priority).

Impact
CASC aims to assess existing methods and approaches to building a scientific culture, including their impact on specific target groups and likely transferability between countries and cultures, with the intention of devising and testing potential new ways of increasing people's involvement with, and understanding of, science and its impact on their work and life style.
