Dissemination addresses targeted groups of users to improve the understanding of what RISIS can offer to their research effort (learning objective).
It is also devoted to produce a change in the research practices of the existing STI community (transformative objective).
Furthermore, dissemination shall develop productive interactions between researchers in the field, scholars from neighboring fields, policy makers, practitioners, and researchers working in stakeholders’ organizations.
Four main group of activities:
- Attending international and national conferences in the fields of economics, management, finance, policy science, sociology, and indicators, as key mean for dissemination.
- ‘Awareness rising’ events with targeted audiences involving users from STI community, users from neighboring R&D communities and stakeholders organizations, to discuss items of interest related to RISIS activities.
- Periodic Policymaker Sessions are a kind of awareness rising events specially organized to involve policy makers on specific issues, also adopting a new approach to aggregated data circulation, in particular towards policy analysts and policymakers.
- Sponsorship, RISIS considers important to contribute to Conferences in the field. As a rule, RISIS can contribute to the conferences with two rates depending on how relevant the conference for the project is (beyond the number of people attending, what is relevant is how the Conference is at the core of the RISIS developments) and the type of involvement that the Conference rules allow to the sponsors.
- Webinars, seminars to discuss advancements produced within RISIS with a wide audience or to circulate information about tools (e.g. OA). Webinars deals with RISIS services (semantic analysis, ontology building, geographical analysis, visualization), and need to develop transversal efforts between RISIS groups.
- Policy briefs, short documents which point out the main issues at stake, demonstrating the contribution provided by main results coming from RISIS and their value to improve the use of data for evidence- policy, and what new avenues for research are now open.
- Communication and Dissemination Activities 2019: a strategic document which outlines the overall approach for communicating with stakeholders and partners about RISIS. It outlines key messages, describes key stakeholders, and describes communications activities.
