Dissemination, Exploitation and Training

Knowledge generated as a result of this project is disseminated via the project website, by publications in highly reputed scientific journals and through presentations at international scientific meetings and workshops.

The project website is continuously up-dated to report on project progress and results. It contains a section dedicated to the general public, including relevant press releases, a section offering open access to published data and a dedicated section providing easily accessible information relevant to the industry.

Project partners are active in different international organisations serving as dissemination platforms.
