Everything you need to know about communicating your project results - available now

A year into its work in developing innovative communication strategies for research projects, the Dandelion project has produced two exciting, interactive online guides to help researchers plan and carry out highly effective communications to ensure their projects get noticed. These easy-to-follow strategies will prove invaluable to all projects hoping to create real impact with their work.

Two exciting new communication guides designed to help researchers improve their communication skills are now available to view online and to download. The interactive guides provide easy-to-follow support for those working in the field of Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) and Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies (IIRS). They offer examples of best practice, useful tools, tips and recommendations and will greatly enhance the communication efforts of any project working in this field. The guides have been produced by the Dandelion project, an EC-funded research effort made up of experts in research communication and dissemination and social sciences. Project partners have developed these latest insights and best practices after interviews with external experts and through the analysis of examples of successful dissemination activity in the social science field. The guides can also be used by researchers working across all thematic sectors. One of the Guides, the “Need to disseminate SSH/IIRS research results? Learn how to reach your target groups”, focuses on providing relevant insight into the dissemination of information to 4 target groups: general public, policy makers, academia and media. The other Guide, the “Guideline of good practices for dissemination and communication managers”, focuses on providing useful information about how to define and implement a strategic dissemination and communication plan for EU-funded projects. This guide provides valuable support for dissemination and communication managers on how to raise awareness about their work and to better communicate their results. Both guides are available to view online and are also downloadable for printing purposes. A physical version is also available, which will be distributed at events or upon request.
