NEWSERA overall aim is to demonstrate the virtues of citizen science as an inclusive, broadband powerful science communication mechanism that can allow to increase trust, awareness and education in science.
It will analyse and evaluate the science communication strategies in citizen science projects across Europe and the United Kingdom, finding barriers in reaching the quadruple helix stakeholders (citizens and society at large, academic scientists, policy makers, industries) and science and data journalists. These results will be the basis for setting up co-creation activities to find innovative
strategies to overcome the defined barriers (#CitSciComm Labs).
To maximize the impacts of the NEWSERA project, a dissemination and communication strategy, together with its implementation plan, is described in this document. It will be used by the consortium to ensure high visibility of the project and its results and to create the precondition for their successful exploitation. This deliverable is also a reference for evaluating the impact of dissemination and communication activities and will be adjusted as the project progresses.
The NEWSERA approach of building a dialogue, through co-creation activities, with its target audiences, will multiply the opportunity to disseminate and communicate the project. The networking activities with other SwafS projects with research interests in common will also enhance NEWSERA overall impact, specially in connection with the SwafS-19 sister projects.
