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.
- 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 Plan (to be defined) 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.
