Tasks 3: Project promotion
Task 3.1: Produce a data management plan
The consortium will produce a detailed data management plan in compliance with the template provided by the EC (Annex I of “Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020”). An initial version will be produced early in the project, which is then updated for the project’s final review.
Task 3.2: Design, implement and maintain a project website
A project website with an open and easy access will be developed, operated and maintained. The website will include the following sections: home, project summary, SUT and Twinning partner profiles, news & events (e.g. forthcoming workshops), training videos, newsletters, links and downloads.
The website will be regularly updated with news and events, training videos, updates to the links section and uploads of documents. The website will be kept active for at least a further 2 years after the project has ended. Google Analytics will be used to collect statistics on the number of pages visited, number of deliverables downloaded, country of the visitors, etc. This data will be periodically reviewed by consortium partners and the website upgraded accordingly.
Task 3.3: Produce promotional materials
Under this task all the material for publicity and promotion will be organised, designed and produced, namely:
• Project leaflet (2 pages, A4 size) and Powerpoint presentation providing overview of the project
• Project poster (A1 size)
• Promotion guide about SUT
• 1-2 newsletters/year over the duration of the project
• Project news will also be distributed through broader scientific news channels e.g. Cordis wire, Alpha Galileo, LinkedIn interest groups, and a maintained project mailing list
• Publication of conference/research papers on results arising from the staff exchanges (see WP1)
The promotional materials (e.g. leaflet, poster and newsletters) will be printed and distributed during relevant European scientific events. These materials will help to raise the awareness of recipients about SUT’s research excellence and innovation capacity. The objective is two-fold: i) initiate contact with European-leading counterparts and develop future cooperation; and ii) attract more followers to the project website.
Task 3.4: Organise outreach activities
The consortium partners will organise a range of different outreach activities.
SUT will schedule press conferences at the start and end of the project and invite regional and national news media (radio, TV and print newspapers).
Three “open days” will be organised over the course of the project – one each year – at SUT, UDUR and TUE respectively. Young students and the general public will be invited to visit the institutes’ laboratories and facilities to learn about their scientific and innovation activities. During the visits, scientific experiments will be demonstrated and engaging lectures given. Also, regional and national news media (radio, TV and print newspapers) will be invited to report on the events.
SUT, UDUR, INAC and TUE will appoint researchers to be “school ambassadors” who will be responsible for visiting 1-2 local schools each year to promote higher education, science and innovation, especially in the field of organic electronics.
