MediaLab-UGR, an innovation lab created at the University of Granada, works as an open physical and digital space to generate innovative solutions for the society using participatory and co-creative methodologies. Cross-media communication is a key element to build the digital identity of projects and to generate engagement with stakeholders. We will present the way we design and execute some of our most relevant projects (LabIN Granada; Laboratorio 717; Cooperanda; UnInPública; Facultad Cero) and will provide an overview of resources, techniques and strategies to improve communication and participation.
