How to carry out dissemination for an EU research project

In addition to project monitoring, EU-funded projects require dissemination efforts.

Receiving funding from the EU (e.g. Horizon 2020 or Eurostars awards) also comes with contractual obligations for dissemination and engagement of and with your project. To comply with EU-guidelines, these efforts should go beyond typical marketing strategies by combining science communication and effective stakeholder engagement for a three-way impact:

Visibility:  Utilize a broad range of platforms to distribute stakeholder co-created materials and to maximize overall impact and visibility.

Public trust & awareness:  Identify core values and increase the societal impact of the project by incorporating patient/end-user needs and understanding public attitudes and opinions, resulting in trust and awareness among the public.

Commercial outreach: Develop an effective dissemination strategy and engage stakeholders, raising your commercial profile and visibility to funding agencies, policy makers, and potential partners
