Report on Communication and Dissemination activities

Reports describing all communication and dissemination activities and including all relevant material will be produced with special focus on the main events organized or attended by the projectThere will be two additional updates on M26 and M46

Communication and Dissemination Strategy and Action Plan

Outlining the major axes of the communication and dissemination strategy. Definition of targets, messages, tools and activities and timing.

OPTIMA newsletter

Online publication presenting the activities and promoting the key features of OPTIMA providing information on relevant activities in Innovation in Crop protection fieldA newsletter update will be delivered at the end of the project M46

First batch of practice abstracts for end-users

"The resulting innovative knowledge and easy accessible end-user material from this project will feed into the EIP-AGRI (The agricultural European Innovation Partnership) website for broad dissemination. The end-user material to be produced contains a substantial number of summaries for practitioners in the EIP common format (""practice abstracts""), including the characteristics of the project (e.g. contact details of partners, etc). A full package of practice abstracts will be produced by the project, containing all the outcomes/recommendations which are ready for practice. A ""practice abstract"" is a short summary of around 1000-1500 characters (word count – no spaces; see below) which describes the main information/recommendation/practice that can serve the end-users in their daily practice. Guidance and templates for these practice abstracts are available on the EIP-AGRI web site: http://ec.europa.eu/eip/agriculture/en/content/eip-agri-common-format. A total target number of 30 practice abstracts is foreseen for the project. 10 are expected to be delivered in the first batch. "

This report will contain the methodology, the experimental procedure and the results of the assessment of different innovative technologies for spray drift control together with a selection of technologies that will be integrated in the three smart sprayers.

Report on the Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis integrating Risk and Life-Cycle Assessment

This report will present the methodological structure of this analysis and the results regarding the tradeoffs between health environmental and socioeconomic dimensions as a comparison between the conventional and the proposed system

Report on results of the co-creation groups

This report will include the analysis of the answers of the cocreation groups in the 3 pilot regions

Report on user requirements for the OPTIMA IPM system

This report will include the analysis of the answers in the survey and the focus groups of the end-users in the 3 pilot countries.

Report on the evaluation and quantification of drift reduction and improved coverage obtained with the smart sprayers

This report will present all the results of the trials of the 3 new smart sprayers regarding the improvements that provide to spraying process in terms of deposition coverage and drift reduction

Data Management Plan & Support Pack

This will be a report to specify how data will be collected, processed, monitored, classified, and disseminated during the project’s lifetime. It will also include a Support Pack with guidelines during their research activities, which software tools and services should be used, and how they can align the project requirements with their institutions’ standard practices and systems. There will be two updated versions of the plan on M20 and M40.
