Setup and Maintenance of Website & Social Media

This task provides the coordination of dissemination activities (E4C project webpage, workshops, conferences, articles, and book) and communication activities. WP10 will take care of the overall coordination of the dissemination and communication activities to be run in parallel to other activities throughout the whole project duration to ensure a prompt communication and publication of project results on several dissemination media channels. The project webpage will be set up at the beginning of the project and regularly updated and maintained. Communication activities will ensure the spreading out of the project’s outcome outside the Consortium so that the methodologies developed and the results obtained can be widely spread out in the scientific community. Communication objectives will be achieved by using multiple different strategies including the use of social networks such as Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to spread out the project knowledge to a larger audience. Given the wide social impact of this research, actions towards the general press will be given through press releases, newsletters and through local press. The dissemination of the results will be realized through a number of training activities and publications in top-level scientific journals. The project results will be presented to the scientific community at a number of prestigious international venues such as top-level conferences and exhibitions.The main dissemination and communication activities to be carried out in the project are described in Section 2.2.1.
