The spreading of excellence, exploiting results and dissemination of knowledge from INDO-MARECLIM will be done by the following measures
Internal dissemination among the project partners:
INDO-MARECLIM will make dedicated efforts to disseminate results to other scientists in Europe and India. This will be part of the process of building cooperation with new partners and extend the research topics for cooperation. Through summer schools, workshops, seminars and conferences, the project will exchange knowledge between scientists and students beyond the project. The project will thereby strengthen and widen the scientific transfer activities within the EU, India and other countries.
Throughout the project, publications, both in scientific literature and in public media, the involved institutions in Europe and India will help to reach out to scientific and to general public. Public participation in the discussion of the project outcome will be encouraged via the project web site. Furthermore, the coordinator and most of the partners are directly involved in academic teaching and education on professional level. Through these links project results will be communicated in the teaching of environmental protection curricula for domestic students and in international graduate degree courses for a variety of students from all over the world.
The INDO-MARECLIM dissemination activities will include;
The results of the projects will be disseminated to a wide range of users and stakeholders in Europe and India. In Europe, the European Environment Agency is a key user of environmental and climate information. In addition, project results will be disseminated to users representing governmental agencies, research institutions, industry, NGOs, educational institutions, media and the public at large.
At the different stages of work, the project participants are encouraged to write newspaper articles, short notes on the accomplished and/or ongoing tasks of the project in relevant forums. The participants are also expected to disseminate the information in their personal capacity, for example, through the interviews in radio, television and newspapers. Dissemination of information as well as fore-warnings could be done through new social e-media like internet blogs and mobile app´s services, group message alerts etc. The information of the project will also be covered in the Annual Reports or other publications by the partner institutions.
During the project, and beyond, information technologies will be applied to provide up-to-date information on the progress of the project, intermediate results and other data on a project website. Users and the public will have easy access to the relevant project findings and will be able to actively participate in discussion forums.
