Deliverable 6.6 Updated Dissemination and Communication Plan

Lazzarato, Lisa; Magalhães, Joana; Arias, Rosa

NEWSERA's overall aim is to demonstrate the virtues of citizen science as an inclusive, broadband powerful science communication mechanism that can increase trust, awareness and education in science.

The project enrolled 38 Citizen Science (CS) initiatives in its Citizen Science Communication Labs (#CitSciComm Labs) based in Italy, Portugal and Spain. The Labs include co-creation activities to analyze and improve the CS initiatives communication towards the quadruple helix stakeholders (citizens and society at large, academic scientists, policymakers, industries) and science and data journalists. Representatives of the CS initiatives meet regularly online with stakeholder groups, science communication professionals, Data and Science journalists and the NEWSERA partners. The innovative communication strategies co-designed within these "Communities of Practice" (CoP) will finally result in Blueprints addressed to effectively reach quadruple helix stakeholders.

This deliverable presents the updated Dissemination and Communication plan of NEWSERA, intended to maximize project impact and guarantee effective dissemination, communication and exploitation.

Since its beginning, the project had to deal with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic: the #CitSciComm Labs were rearranged and moved to online activities. Many dissemination activities have been canceled or moved online, like many communication activities or the organization and participation in different types of events. These changes opened new opportunities and allowed NEWSERA to involve more CS initiatives in the workshops than expected and to potentially reach a more numerous audience. The new remote working approach also facilitated networking with other H2020 SwafS-19 sister projects: a working group of the 8 funded projects has been constituted and meets periodically, sharing experiences, knowledge and resources.
