How to set up a communication and dissemination strategy at proposal stage

Proposal Writing series

Understanding the whole communication and dissemination cycle.

Date Time Duration Price
10:00 CEST 45+15 min € 65

Within section 2.2 of your proposal, you need to include ways in which you can maximise your project’s impact. First, you need to clearly state what your project objectives are, identify who should be aware of them, how you think you can reach them and monitor your success. At this stage, evaluators should see you have the big picture in your mind and that your strategy has the potential to be successful during implementation.

Together we will:

  • Start jotting down your communication and dissemination strategy at the proposal stage (2.2)
  • Learn from submitted proposals
  • Get a clear understanding of what is expected of you from the evaluator’s perspective
  • Introduce elements of target group analysis and needs assessment
  • Explore types of exploitation strategies and what can be recommended depending on your idea
  • Look into the structure of a Plan for Exploitation and Dissemination of Results

Who we are  

Europa Media is a unique company supporting public and private organisations to develop successful project proposals and effectively manage projects under the EU's research and innovation programmes since FP5. Over the past 20 years, our team has been directly involved in writing successful proposals and coordinating and managing projects under different EU programmes. Under Horizon 2020, we have been involved in over 30 projects as coordinators and partners. Our workshops and seminars are designed based on this direct experience we have from our own proposals and projects - we discuss and reflect on a lot of specific problems during these events.
