Effective Dissemination

Whilst the completion of the project is the milestone upon which we focus, it is never too early to think about how the results are going to be shared. Methods may include

  • Presentations at meetings and conferences
  • Peer-reviewed journal articles
  • Editorial pieces reflecting upon the project
  • Briefings for stakeholder groups
  • Using social media to elicit feedback and plan future work

Linked closely to work on stakeholder groups, and indeed harnessing their insights and expertise, dissemination strategies should be planned in from the beginning of every project.
