WP6 Dissemination and Exploitation

Dissemination activities

  1. Putting together the Dissemination & Exploitation interim and final plan and corresponding Communication (Media) Plan
    • Drawing up and implementing a Communication (Media) plan to ensure extensive and positive coverage of the consortium in the national and international media; actively working with the consortium’s “outside” dissemination partners to achieve the project’s dissemination and communication goals;
    • Relatedly, writing together the Dissemination & Exploitation plan focusing more specifically on disseminating and opening up new knowledge and know how arising from SciCar
  2. Developing the project website
  3. Compiling mailing lists and contact databases (M1-3)
  4. Dissemination and communication
    • Working closely with WPs 2,3,4,5 to communicate and disseminate information about the courses and seminars, joint schools, the results of academic mobility, final conference, collaborative projects, etc.
    • Disseminating and communicating the scientific results of the project to diverse audiences, using a variety of tools and strategies, including the project website, mailing lists, events, Facebook, You-tube, social media, etc.
    • Organising a series of public dissemination events, such as best practice talks at schools, presentations at education and research fairs, panel discussions, White Paper presentations, etc.
    • Developing printed promotional materials introducing the consortium
    • Producing short (1-3-minute) multimedia clips to help disseminate and popularise the results of the project (conferences, collaborative projects, major publications, etc.). These will be linked to the project website, and posted on appropriate university platforms (UTTV, Youtube, etc.)
    • Collecting and analysing data about the effectiveness and reach of the communication and dissemination effort, as well as reactions and feedback to the project by stake-holders and user communities
  5. Organising a final research & dissemination conference
