Public dissemination summary

"The Dissemination and Communication Plan will be updated by Dissemination and Communication Manager (DTU) and ESR Board on a regular basis. All the conducted activities will be registered and will eventually comprise the final ""Public dissemination summary""."

Conference I, II, and III

Three annual network conferences with the presence of all ESRs and the participation of all the beneficiaries and partner organizations. ESRs will have the opportunity to present their research objectives and results to the network, including ESR colleagues, and to receive feedback. Participants from outside of the network will be invited to each conference.

Characterized Parts Library

Characterization data on regulatory parts library incl. upload to online open-access data repository

PAcMEN website

Public website will be created in the very beginning of the project and will be maintained throughout the project duration. The website will announce the new discoveries and publications from PAcMEN ESRs, the upcoming presentations by PAcMEN ESRs at scientific and industry-relevant conferences and workshops, reports/pictures/videos from the dissemination events, press-releases in local and international media, and so on.
