WP 5

To disseminate the results of the project to the regional/local and national policy and decision makers and other interested market actors (WP 5)
The specific objective of the work package is the following: to disseminate the results of the project to the regional/local and national policy and decision makers and other interested actors, and to establish a virtual collaboration area and virtual learning area for the project.
Public interface: The project needs to be adequately disseminated to the public in order to deliver the required information, to establish credibility on the local, national and regional level, to obtain additional funding, attract other regional collaboration partners, to establish and market the network structures, as well as to promote the whole idea the project is pursuing. Therefore an information dissemination strategy and plan need to be prepared and implemented. The information dissemination strategy and plan will describe the mean and tools of reaching the target areas and the relevant stakeholders. The information dissemination related to the network structures will be delegated to the network structures in order to reach sustainability in this regard.
Virtual Collaboration Environment, VCE. A Virtual Collaboration Environment based on an open source system Moodle will be established initially at the project office, and serve as a tool for file sharing, library, communication platform and a platform for project development. A dedicated area will be established for project management (project internal tool), the project components as required, and for the 3 network structures.
Virtual Learning Environment, VLE. It is foreseen that some of the communication among the project participants will have a character of training; for this reason a Virtual Learning Environment will be established to undertake internal e-learning courses on targeted areas. The potential use of the VLE for more formal educational purposes will be explored by the project.
