Disseminating "European virtual institute for gas turbine instrumentation"

The objectives of the dissemination work for the "European virtual institute for gas turbine instrumentation" project are related to the Promotion and Co-ordination of the project. This part of the project acts also as the point of contact between the Commission and the partnership.

Progress made to-date includes the development of the following promotional materials:
- New Members Leaflet;
- In-house Publication;
- Single Page Flyer;
- 2 Editions of the EVI-GTI Newsletter.

The EVI-GTI website ( has been re-designed and re-launched. It now includes a range of questionnaires for the wider community covering topics such as R&D interest, Training Needs and Availability, Products and Services and Organizational information.

Two papers promoting EVI-GTI have been published and a further two are currently being written for publication during 2004.

EVI-GTI exhibited at the world’s first Aerospace Testing Expo, which was held in Hamburg between 25th and 27th February 2003 and was well received within the community.

EVI-GTI was given the opportunity to publish an article in the Aerospace Testing Expo magazine, which was circulated at the Paris Airshow in June 2003, a good opportunity to access a very targeted market.
