Research Project Partnership
The success of any research project depends on its ability to bring its results to its market place and clearly demonstrate how these results will benefit its end users. This applies to all research, both basic and commercial, meaning all projects need a structured communications policy to best achieve these aims.
The need for dissemination
This need for dissemination is recognised by the European Commission, which explicitly requests that FP7 projects provide multimedia material as part as their dissemination plan as identified in the following clause from European Commission’s DG Information Society and Media – ICT for Sustainable Growth:
“As part of their dissemination plan, the beneficiaries (of FP7 funding) commit to produce appealing multimedia material showcasing to the public at large the activities performed in the frame of this grant agreement. This would include material at both the early and late stages of the project. They shall make clear reference to the FP7 ICT Theme and comprise at the minimum a public website, leaflets, a set of re-usable illustrations and a few short standalone videos for use by the consortium and the EC in various events. Such videos shall be downloadable from the project web site and from other widely visited media.”
