Communication of European Health Research

Objective

The overall aim of CommHERE is to improve communication on the outcome of EU funded health research projects to the media, the general public and other target groups including the EC in all of Europe.
The CommHERE consortium comprises 10 partners, all research institutions active in the health research area. All partners are responsible for the coordination of EU-funded health research projects. This strong EU research connection is crucial for the proposed project plan, since it gives the consortium the possibility to work in close contact with the actual performers of health research.
The general concept of CommHERE is to act on parallel levels which both are developed during the project period.

On the one hand there will be an increase in actual communication activities on ongoing research directed towards the media, various stakeholders and the general public by production of press releases, virtual texts and images, and outreach activities. Basic tools and guidelines for this, applicable on a European level, will be prepared, used and developed.
On the other hand – for a long-term sustainable effect – the project participants will work closely with the PIs and other representatives of new and ongoing research projects to encourage and motivate them, by giving tools, feed-back and incentives for continuous communication also outside of the scientific community.

All activities will initially be made on a local level, within each of the participant’s institutions, but towards a European audience. The guidelines, experiences and any good examples will successively be spread nationally and between countries. A network of communication officers from all parts of Europe will stimulate future collaboration, sharing of experiences and competence building.
