The research group is working on a number of projects in the field of communication and media. Some projects are related to specific fields of practice, such as journalism or strategic communication. Others examine more extensive trends over time, such as digitalization or applications of data visualization. A main focus in the group is to investigate how developments in media technology affect the ways in which communication unfolds within different genres and on different arenas and platforms.

In recent years, the group's members have been responsible for two major international projects. The project Innovative Data Visualization and Visual-Numeric Literacy (INDVIL), funded by the Norwegian Research Council, has been led by Professor Martin Engebretsen from 2016-2020, while Professor Kenneth Andresen has led the Norwegian part of the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project Revisiting the Past , Anticipating the Future (RePast). More information concerning these projects can be found below.

The group's latest joint project concerns popular science communication in the digital public.   Through a series of sub-projects, the group wants to focus on the opportunities and challenges the digitalization of society represents in relation to the development of a knowledge-based public conversation about current issues and challenges.
