D4.2. Plan for exploitation and dissemination of the project results
- 1. Euronovia
This document is a deliverable of the Co-UDlabs project, funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101008626.
The aim of this document is to provide the first version of the Plan for Dissemination and Exploitation of Results (PEDR), produced at M6 as part of the Work Package 4 on communication, dissemination and exploitation of results.
The aim of the PEDR is to provide the Co-UDlabs partners with guidelines on the different communication and dissemination activities that are planned and their schedule, who are the partners responsible for each activity and what tools and channels are available for dissemination. A section on exploitation will define the actions planned to achieve the exploitation of the results and impact of the project.
More specifically, in terms of dissemination and communication the PEDR will:
Propose a communication and dissemination policy, and define the objectives of the actions;
Identify the target audience for each objective or main result;
List the communication and dissemination channels to be used for project promotion;
Present a schedule of the communication and dissemination actions throughout the project duration;
Define and monitor a series of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to assess the success of the implementation (e.g. number of publications, size of the audience reached, number of visits on the website, feedback received from audiences at conferences, etc.) and update the plan according to the evolution of the project.
In terms of the exploitation of the results, the PEDR will contain the following information, if applicable and when relevant, especially within the final exploitation plan to be submitted at the end of the project:
- The identification of exploitable main outputs of the project;
- The identification of the factors influencing exploitation and wide deployment of the project’s results
- The identification of new and existing measures for the project sustainability.
The document is drafted by Euronovia, which is leader of this Work Package, with inputs from all partners.
While Euronovia is the leading partner in charge of WP4, all partners have the responsibility to participate in the communication activities and dissemination of the results of the project. According to the grant agreement and unless it goes against their legitimate interests, each beneficiary must, as soon as possible, disseminate its results by disclosing them to the public by appropriate means (other than those resulting from protecting or exploiting the results), including in scientific publications.
The PEDR is an evolving document which will be updated at the end of each reporting period (October 2022, April 2024 and April 2025).
