Work Package 5: Dissemination, training and technology transfer

WP Leaders E.Lupotto (P1) and D. Ederle (P2)
Different approaches will be pursued in order to reach the target audience, maximize dissemination of the project results and technology transfer, and invest in the training and formation of young scientists. All partners will contribute.

WP5.1. Dissemination. Dissemination of the results will proceed on two main lines: a) dissemination towards the scientific community and b) dissemination towards stakeholders and public at large. A preliminary agenda of the main events of dissemination is given in Table 1-WP5.

Month Event Responsible Partners Target audience
1 Workshop for project presentation P1+P2 Public at large scientific community stakeholders
6 Thematic workshop/seminar P3 Scientific community
9 Open Day/seminar P1 + partner(s) Stakeholders/end users
13 Workshop for project presentation Year1 P1+P2 Public at large Scientific community stakeholders
18 Thematic workshop/seminar P12 Scientific community
21 Open Day/seminar P1 + partner(s) Stakeholders/end users
25 Workshop for project presentation Year2 P1+P2 Public at large Scientific community stakeholders
30 Thematic workshop/seminar P10 Scientific community
18 Open Day/seminar P1 + partner(s) Stakeholders/end users
25 Final Workshop - end project P1+P2 and all Partners Public at large Scientific community stakeholders
  1. The dissemination towards the scientific community will rely mainly on the publication of scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and on training courses or workshops with Universities and other players interested in the project. Research articles will be published into peer review international scientific journals by individual or collaborating partners, these latter ones being promoted to reflect the collaborative structure of the project. Scientific publications will certify the progress of the project and the value of the results obtained. National and international visiting researchers will be hosts by the partners of the project in order to show and share with them the progress and the new techniques developed. P1 will be responsible of the implementation of this task.
  2. Dissemination towards the general public will rely mainly on regular appointments which will promoted in Open Days and Workshops. A web site dedicated to the project will be established (P1+P2), with constant update every 6 months. Specific sections of the project web site will be organized for: a) announcements of workshops and seminars and dissemination activities; b) research activity update; c) reports; d) factsheets etc. A general brochure for project presentation will be published and one-page flyers as well, for better dissemination of the various project research areas. Reviews, articles and notes will be published in technical journals of the agricultural area, to guarantee wide dissemination at the national level.

WP5.2. Training and formation activity. All Partners will take part to these actions, including training of young research scientists, supported with fellowships and specific PhD and Post-doc grants. A planned total number of 12 young scientists will be enrolled in the project, and additional grants/fellowships/PhD targeted fellowships will be searched to implement the formation activity. A number of thesis of university levels will be delivered by the end of the project.
WP5.3. Technology transfer.Technology transfer activities will be accomplished through the Technical Group of Interest (TGI).
