Communications & Dissemination
Our Core Team:
However, our work is always done in collaboration with the Co-ordination and Management Team (Work Package 7) and all other consortium members.
Organisation: University of Edinburgh
We will support and co-ordinate communications, dissemination and exploitation activities for the project. However, all partners will contribute actively to work package 6.
One of our first tasks will be to write a dissemination and communications plan for the project.
Our activities will take a variety of forms including:
Website and social media
Scientific papers and conference presentations
Science Festivals/Fairs and other public events
Press releases & popular science magazine articles
Satellite events scientific meetings
The activities within Work package 6 are directed towards a wide variety of audiences including:
the scientific community, in particular, clinical researchers and biomarker developers,
health care workers & health care authorities,
the health and pharmaceutical industries.
Patients, their relatives and patient organisations
We will undertake some of our activities in collaboration with other organisations such as the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium and the Nordic Society of human genomics and precision medicine.
In addition, The University of Oslo is responsible for organising annual project meeting for all project partners and AMRA will lead dissemination towards industry.
Participatory research and policy development
The researchers within Work Package 6 have recently completed a UK-wide survey on attitudes to data science.
This work will be replicated across CoMorMent sites, to explore attitudes to data science across different parts of Europe, and explore whether stakeholders endorse the practice of ‘data dumping’ when a research project is complete.
This project is expected to generate knowledge that is of direct relevance to national and international policymakers
