Communication plays an essential role in scientific projects, especially since it is possible to use social media and web platforms, to reach a wide audience. OpenCoesione is the “open-government” initiative on cohesion policies in Italy, a web platform with navigable data on public programmed resources and expenses, locations, thematic areas, programmers and actuators, implementation times and payments of individual projects. It allows to evaluate how the resources are used relation to the needs of the territories. Any citizen can enrich this platform, analysing public projects and documenting the current state with open data.«A Scuola di OpenCoesione» it is part of OpenCoesioneproject and represents an innovative experimental project of school teaching of open government strategy of openness and transparency on development policies. It is a teaching and civic challenge addressed to students and teachers of secondary institutes of second degree. Students move from the analysis of information and data published in open format on the OpenCoesione portal, to find out how public funds are spent on their territory.The goal of A Scuola di OpenCoesione is to involve and sensitize students and teachers to the use of contents and tools to learn and monitor the projects of cohesion policies, to build interdisciplinary educational programs starting from the projects financed on their respective territories and enriching, through crowdsourcing, the information base of OpenCoesione adding information and data that are not currently available as, for example, geolocation, multimedia materials, the characteristics of the project, the physical performance of the works. Focus of this research was the public financing aimed to the creation of O.R.B.S. (Observatory of marine and terrestrial biodiversity in Sicily). Our observatory finds its place within the operational objective 3.2.1 of the OP programming ERDF Sicily 2007-2013 actions,to create a public biodiversity observation node for the protection of natural resources consistent with the provisions of Reg. (EC) 1080/06. It constitutes the implementation program of an interventions plan, approved by the Sicily Region. ISPRA and the CNR have carried out the task of studying marine biodiversity present in Sicily, through the collection of data concerning the presence of species in protected areasand of nonindigenous species, as well as their elaboration. The dissemination methods of O.R.B.S. they have been developed through three phases: reconnaissance of existing data, data processing, monitoring.
