General description

FHU ONCOAGE gathers a group of various stakeholders (researchers, clinicians, companies, policy-makers…). The dissemination, communication and exploitation of results tasks are crucial for the whole project activities and the consortium is fully committed to develop a comprehensive strategy ensuring the good and full use of research results and innovative solutions developed within the FHU. To achieve the generation of new ideas, discoveries and innovations, their implementation and their integration in the day-to-day life of citizens, professionals, policy-makers and all stakeholders we need to:

  • Set up the needed internal tools to ensure the perfect communication, coordination and mutual knowledge of the consortium’s members;
  • Design the implementation and scale-up strategies for the discoveries developed within the project;
  • Promote the results across Europe and beyond, thanks to a multi-channel communication strategy, reaching a large multi-stakeholder audience;
  • Promote the solutions directly to decision-makers and users;
  • Convert and apply research results within Education and Training programmes (see WP-E. Education)

Task Title
Dissemination Events & Meetings
Task Description

The Dissemination Strategy will plan for a number of events throughout the lifecycle of the project. These events will inform key stakeholders (researchers, health and social care professionals, policy-makers, purchasers and companies) and potential project participants about the project and generate early interest, and to disseminate outcomes of the project and promote the adoption of the project/ services on an on-going basis once the project term has ended.

Dissemination events will be organised (as much as possible) to coincide with international events to increase visibility and exposure for the project.

The consortium’s partners will consider the use of local and national television and newspaper coverage of the events to ensure maximum communication of the project messages. Project partners will also support dissemination activities by actively seeking speaking slots at other events, in order to reach a wider audience.
