Communicate! – Efficient communication for successful research cooperation

  • modified123Have you ever experienced communication problems with project partners in cooperative research projects?
  • Do you feel that your dissemination actions had less impact than expected?
  • Are you aware that new funding schemes like Horizon 2020 favor even larger consortia and expect even more visibility especially among a non-specialist audience?

Due to increasing project size and a shift towards increased innovation content, communication in cooperative projects is becoming a bigger challenge. External communication is required to find resonance with different target groups and funding programme officers expect higher visibility of the funded activities in non-specialist audiences.

This workshop which is supported by the SFG and the Know-Center provides expert knowledge, hands-on experience and effective methods for those who are actively involved in the coordination tasks of research and innovation projects. The workshop is also aimed at the support staff (project managers, work package-leaders, task leaders and advisors such as Enterprise Europe Network staff).
