Work Package 5: Project networking activities and dissemination
The activities of this WP will be transvers to WP1-4 and focused on scientific dissemination. All the project partners will contribute to the activities of this WP under the guidance of INRA-Morocco. The first task will be to develop and maintain the AVIAMED website, as this will be important to give more visibility to the initiative. The website will be an interface of primary importance as it will serve several purposes such as familiarize non-affiliated researchers, explain the aims of the project to the general public and stakeholders, disseminate project results to interested parties, coordinate the project and research undertaken by its members. It will include information about the project, contact details, background information, selected presentations, links to related websites and articles in scientific and technical journals. For these reasons, it will be a key feature of the project and will need a regular update.
A second important task of this WP will be the organization of the kick off and project science and technology meetings that will be organized annually.
Another important activity will be the organization of Short/Medium Term Scientific Missions (SMTSM) that will be an effective way to start and energize collaborations, to make new equipment and methods familiar to all the project members and to standardize experimental and analytical approaches, so that large-scale tasks can be effectively reached. SMTSM will apply to scientists from all WP and will be a way of promoting the involvement of early-stage and promising scientists in mobility for advanced training. SMTSM will be an important instrument to lay the foundations of new interdisciplinary scientific collaborations and foster the development of new products.
