Ophthalmic OCT on a Chip

Deliverables

Training event: Optical imaging

During the project training actions will be taken to ensure knowledge exchange and to deepen the awareness with respect to key topics in this highly interdisciplinary consortium. The courses will be primarily directed to students and staff scientist as well as engineers of the partner organisations but also open to external guests. Three courses with internal and external experts are planned with the following topics: 1) Medical background on retinal diseases 2) Optical imaging in medicine 3) Integrated optics and optoelectronics

Press release

To ensure a concerted dissemination and communication the EDT will prepare a dissemination and communication plan during Y1, which will be thereafter regularly assessed and updated. The EDT will identify topics suited for dissemination and coordinate the according activities of the partners. This includes publications in open access scientific journals, presentations at international conferences and workshops as well as through lectures presented to academia, industry and EU policy makers. Along with its activities in task 9.1, the EDT will implement the open data actions according to the decision procedures defined in the Data Management Plan (DMP). The dissemination of the results to research managers, company representatives and scientists not participating in the project, will be assured by the means of publications as well as by the participation in workshops and public forums such as events organised by the EC. Interaction with other EU and national projects as well as stakeholder organisations in the field of point-of-care diagnostics, ophthalmic diagnosis, and health care will be initiated. Various other routes of communication in non-scientific media will be actively pursued to ensure the visibility of OCTCHIP in the public such as publications in popular science magazines, press releases, popular science presentations on television and social media. At least two press releases will be launched by CZ at the beginning and at the end of the project on the vision of the OCTCHIP project and on its achievements, respectively. AIT will be responsible for setting up and maintaining the project website which will be operational by the end of month 2 after project start. The website will comprise an internal area, a limited access area dedicated to public relations (PR) actions, and a public area. On the internal area the latest results, activities, as well as reporting and other relevant documents will be shared to ensure a constant flow of information within the consortium. The public area will provide information about the project objectives, recent results, publications and related events. The OCTCHIP website will be linked to other relevant websites including EU‐funded projects.

Set-up content management system

In this task a Data Management Plan (DMP) will be elaborated within the first six months of the project. The DMP will address issues related to: • Project wide standardisation of data handling, documentation, storage and archiving (e.g. data formats, structure of the Master Specification Document (MSD), format and contents of annotation, naming of files, folder structures, etc.). • Decision making procedures (to be implemented in WP8) on which data will be disclosed at what time and on which data has to be transferred to the MSD until the end of the project. • Rules for curating data, which will be implemented by the individual partners, as well as for preservation of data (including MSD) for the time after the project.
