|Dissemination and exploitation of results are integral parts of the Erasmus+ project. Making others aware of it contributes to raising the profile of the organisations involved in Erasmus+ Programmes, and it enables the wider community to benefit from the EU funded project outputs in terms of implementing education and training. Being dissemination activities of various types and topics, it is important to consider which kind of dissemination activities are fitted to the main goal of the present educational programme.|
- Dissemination is an innovative concept beyond the well-established reporting of academic results, traditionally book publications, academic journals and meetings (conferences and workshops). Research dissemination is a planned process of communication and interaction that involves several target audiences. A target audience is a group of people, to whom the messages, results, strategies and methodologies are addressed. Each audience is labelled with specific attributes. Activities and messages must be tailored to the audience features. A dissemination plan provides information on the results,
programmes and initiatives to the key actors who, as part of the target audience, have the political responsibility, the financial resources, the authority or the skills and expertise to actively influence local processes of social, urban and landscape transformation.
- Exploitation is the use of the project results for commercial purposes or in public policymaking. Its main aim is to convince individual end-users to adopt and apply the results of the project and its initiatives, so that the outcomes are used beyond the lifetime of the project.
The project needs to define which partner is responsible for the dissemination activity, with the task of designing the plan and reports at different stages.
