WP6 – Coordination and dissemination

WP6. Coordination and dissemination    WP6 – F4S – description (PDF ~ 150ko)

 Task 6.1. Coordination (CPDR)

The role of the coordinator in the network management is firstly, to ensure a clear and effective communication between the different partners and with PPS Science Policy and secondly, to coordinate the work of all partners in order to guarantee the smooth execution of the project. The coordinator shall ensure that the deliverables shall meet the highest scientific standards and that they shall be delivered on time; and that the means available for the research shall be used in the most efficient way possible.

In order to achieve these objectives, the coordinator shall convene regular meetings between all partners. A kick-off meeting will officially start the project, introduce the new researchers recruited on the project to the relevant existing knowhow and documentation, and fine-tune the work programme. However, as partners have a good knowledge of their mutual competences, little time will be needed as ‘learning curve’.

Quarterly technical meetings will allow the partners to discuss and assess work progress and encountered difficulties, propose solutions, take suitable decisions and if appropriate, reorient precise tasks. One of these meetings, at the end of the first year, will assess achievements and lessons learned, and fine-tune the work program for the second project year.

A final meeting will assess the overall project, prepare the workshop and follow-on work after the project.

 Task 6.2. Reports and dissemination (CPDR-CEB-BIOECONOMICS)

 The project will have 6 deliverables:

D1: ’Positioning “Food4Sustainability’, at the end of month 6, containing the results of tasks 1.1.- 1.2. ;

D2: ‘Driving forces of Food4sustainability’, at the end of month 24, containing the results of WP2;

D3: ‘Food4Sustainability best practice governance principles’, at the end of month 24, containing the results of Task 3.1;

D4: ‘Designing Food4Sustainability, at the end of month 36, containing the results of Task 3.2;

D5: ‘Food4Sustainability Roadmaps for transition’, at the end of month 42, containing the results of Task 3.3;

D6: ‘Food4Sustainability conclusions and recommendations’, at the end of month 48, containing the results of WP5.

All these deliverables will be public and will take the form of research papers for easier dissemination to a wide audience. Such material will be disseminated through the social networks of the participants (to academia, policy makers, stakeholders, et alii), via international conferences and publications, as well as through a dedicated website of the project.

Besides, a flyer will be made for introducing the project to non-academics. This will be used to inform interviewees, participants of workshops and focus groups, government contact persons, conferences etc. It can be regarded as an easy-to-read summary of the goals and the research plans of the project.

At the end of the project, a workshop will be organized for stakeholders, policy makers, academia and other interested people where the major conclusions and recommendations will be presented and put into context.
