Digital Objects for Real Impact

A French speaking, culture and science oriented community

for rising extra support

On top of corporate, the public support from Wallonie -Bruxelles International (WBI) or Louvain University, added to students "love money" from their families, covers a significant part of the budget. Still, this adventure is far from cheap. To help spark public awareness and contribute to experimentation and pedagogic transmission material production, it is critical that extra funds are injected.

To make it sexy, Objet Témoin is producing fun and social-media friendly content and keeps the community updated via the Ulule project page.
