Events Proceeding Report

Adjacent to the kick-off meeting, a launching event will be organised in M4 to present WaterProtect to relevant stakeholders particularly illustrating the objectives of the project, the 7 case studies that will take place, the innovative technologies that will be demonstrated, the water quality viewer that will be developed. At the completion of the project, the consortium of the project will organise a closing event to present the project’s activities and results. The conference will be held in Brussels and will host at least 100 relevant European stakeholders. The case study leaders will organize local events to demonstrate mitigation measures in the catchment and to discuss the project and the project results. Two proceedings of these events will be published in M18 and M36.

Project website and social media operational

The project website will enable a widespread dissemination of the project, its objectives, results, partners and approach and will include both a public and a private area, the latter reserved to consortium members as a platform for knowledge sharing. Dedicated sections will be created to present the individual case studies, general information on the project and detailed information about the innovative farming systems and mitigation measures that have been identified to deliver good water quality. The website will remain operative for 2 years after the project has ended. In addition, social media profiles (Twitter, LinkedIn, ResearchGate, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) will be set up to touch the general public in an attractive way.

The Communication and Dissemination Plan will outline the specifics, procedures and timelines for external dissemination among stakeholders outside the consortium to exploit the projects’ results and to ensure fast deployment of the mitigation measures, tools and management practices concerned. The Communication and Dissemination Plan will also include the development of a set of communication and dissemination materials to promote the project’s activities and results. The plan will explain in detail objectives, procedures and strategies, target groups, tools and activities for each target group, procedures for the participation in events and conferences, synergies with other projects, timetable, indicative budget and impact indicators. The plan will be developed at the beginning of the project (M4) and an updated version of the plan, adjusted to the project achievements, will be presented during M18. Adjacent to the communication and dissemination plan, a stakeholder database (including stakeholder contact details) will be established to facilitate knowledge sharing of relevant stakeholders between consortium partners and facilitate further communication between the consortium and stakeholders.

Three best practice upscale workshops

During year three (Y3) of the project, there will be “best practice upscale workshops”, which will focus specifically on sharing case study conclusions based on the roadmap developed. The workshops are a targeted way to upscale the solutions and practices identified by the case studies by directly sharing conclusions and identified results with other potential users in a specific geographical location.
