We assist projects in all matters of project communication. We offer a specialized workshop (http://www.communicate-science.net) designed for project leaders and all other persons with coordination tasks (WP leader, project office etc.). We care for all concerns relating to the communication of your research results and activities as well as team communication topics. We achieve the desired visibility within the target audience without generating unnecessary overhead. Following a strategic approach we align external and internal communication to avoid gaps and disruption of the communication in the team and towards external target groups.

If useful we take responsibility for all dissemination activities of your research project. Together with the project coordinator we develop a dissemination plan and execute it. On basis of direct communication with the researchers we deliver concrete actions for communication and distribution in cooperation with experts, e.g. journalists, event organizers, web-designer etc. We handle such activities for project partners but also for overall projects. We help during the organization of single events or accompany the project through all phases from proposal development to exploitation.

For funding bodies we offer training workshops and talks with the goal to increase the efficiency of the dissemination activities of their beneficiaries.

We help you to rate your results. Quite often it happens that the most significant results for a researcher aren’t the most interesting ones for a target group. On the other hand, it happens that results that are efficient to communicate end up in a drawer. By involving an external you can avoid blind spots.

We coordinate your team during the proposal phase to build up a competitive team for a proposal. We accompany the team through the application phase and assist during the starting phase of a project to set-up and prepare the team for the upcoming challenges of the project.

What kinds of transnational cooperation with other partners would your organisation like to participate in?

We are interested in supporting research projects and people working in such projects in all matters of communicating. We think that external communication (dissemination) and internal communication (team, roles, vision, etc.) are connected topics and should go together to successfully disseminate. In case of arising problems, a well set-up internal communication helps to solve them efficiently. Coming for technology research (IT-Security), we work mostly for technology oriented projects and communities, but in general we are open to support any research activities.
As regular evaluator and reviewer of EU funded projects we know the evaluator side of projects well, and can help a project’s coordination team to prepare for reviews and negotiations with the funding agency.
In the proposal phase we assist in setting up the team and in the development of the communication and dissemination strategies and plan. A strong communication plan is of increasing importance during evaluation of proposals.
We provide pre-designed workshops (http://www.communicate-science.com) or individual consulting and training.
