Before jumpstarting your next EU project you may let people know what you have achieved. You want to? Actually, you HAVE TO!

Timing

When planning the dissemination, it is important to decide when different dissemination activities will be most relevant. The ideal timing will depend on the progress of the project as well as on the agenda of the target audience. For instance, at the start of the project, it is best to focus on raising awareness; at the end on highlighting the achievements and deliverables. In terms of the “receivers” agenda, the time commitments of the target audience and stakeholders should be considered. For instance, school or bank holidays should be acknowledged, and when working with universities, it will be difficult to reach academic staff at the start of the term or during examinations.
