It is important to underline that dissemination activities are an integral part of the project, throughout its lifetime, and will remain vital after the project completion. The main dissemination channels:
On-going activities (responsible: all)
Each Partner will disseminate the project results during activities such as workshops, conferences, seminars, meetings etc. at organisational, local, national and international level, during the course of the project, as well as after the final results come out. Project partners are actively involved in teaching, but also belong to wide scientific/educational communities, and stay in a close relation with stakeholders representing food sector. Therefore they will disseminate information about the project during all their on-going activities. Minimal target: Each partner will disseminate information about the project (or/and project results) during min. 3 activities at organisational level and min. 5 activities at local, national or international level during the course of the project. Completion of the task will be described by each partner in dissemination reports delivered to the coordinator after the 1st year of the project and before the last project meeting (see M&E5,11). Dissemination reports will contain information about the date, type of the dissemination activity, activity description (up to 500 characters), target group, main outcomes/feedback.
Existing networks (responsible: all)
Project partners are active members of research and educational networks, both national and international. They will disseminate information about the project within these networks. Example: prof. Rembiałkowska is planning to spread information about this project proposal during OFSP network meeting in Apr. 2016 in Kopenhagen; the outcomes of SUSPLUS will be also disseminated among the ISOFAR members during the 19th Organic World Congress of IFOAM in India in Nov. 2017.
Project website (responsible: WULS)
Information about the partnership as well as project outcomes will be disseminated using project website. Website will be created in the first months of the project and updated by the project coordinator during the course of the project as well as after the final results come out. Links to the website will be spread among higher education institutions, representatives of sustainable food sector and relevant authorities. Stakeholders representing sustainable food sector will be asked to place link to the project website on their websites.
Facebook (responsible: University of Copenhagen)
This communication platform will be created at the beginning of the project and constantly updated with information about the project, the activities and new results. Project partners will invite as many interested parties as possible to view the profiles and to keep track of the project activities. Links to the profiles will be placed on the project website.
Websites of partner universities (responsible: all)
Each partner will be responsible for placing information about the partnership on the university (or/and faculty/department) website & for keeping it up-to-date.
The EU Dissemination Platform (responsible: WULS)
Information and results of the project will be placed on the Erasmus+ website for dissemination and exploitation of results.
Project educational activities (responsible: all)
Project participants (students, lecturers) will be encouraged to share with others what they have gained from taking part in the project.
Implementation into the standard teaching programmes (responsible: all)
Each partner will make an effort to implement the modules developed within the project into standard teaching programme of the university. This would ensure continuous dissemination of the results and would strengthen overall impact of the project.
1st and 2nd Conference ‚Sustainable Food Systems – Outcomes of the SUSPLUS project’ (responsible: all)
The 1st conference will be organised in Germany in February 2018 and the 2nd conference in each partner country in July 2018 (both with the aim of effective dissemination of the intellectual outputs of the project and encouraging participants to make use of similar initiatives in the future. See section G.2., Multiplier Event E1-E9 for details.
International report ‘Analysis of students’ understanding of the Sustainable food system and expectations towards education within this subject area’ (O1) (responsible: all)
A report will be written jointly by all partners, and if possible, published in a quality scientific journal. Once published, it will become available in a wide range of electronic databases.
Capacity Building Project (responsible: WULS)
Next step to disseminate project outcomes would be a common Capacity Building project involving higher education institutions from non-EU countries. The SUSPLUS outcomes would be used to support the modernisation, accessibility and internationalisation of higher education in these countries.
