Keywords:exploitation and dissemination activities, target audience, communication strategy
AbstractThe study is focused on the exploitation and dissemination activities for the sustainability of the MSc program on Smart Maritime & Surveying Systems within the Surveying & MARiTime internet of thingS EducAtion (SMARTSEA) project. A key factor for success is to ensure that the results and achievements of the project are made widely available to its target audience comprised of students, industrial partners, academic & market business and scientific community.
As a unique European pilot-project funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Programme Knowledge Alliances, SMARTSEA aimed to develop an advanced interactive certified MSc course related to Maritime & Surveyor IoT applications that will train individuals with the necessary skills & knowledge to work in the rising “Smart Maritime & Surveying” industry.
To reach its target audiences according to its expected impacts, an effective communication strategy was developed, based on project-specific dissemination and communication activities.
This approach will provide an overview of the resources needed to accomplish the exploitation and dissemination objectives throughout the project lifecycle, while creating guidelines for future development and exploitation.
