DCO - Dissemination, Communication
and Outreach (Work package 2)
The Dissemination, Communication
and Outreach (DCO) Work Package will organize and implement
efficient communications inside and outside the consortium. They
should enhance the internal synergies and provide added value by
allowing information flow to/from other projects and the general
public. DCO will equally support the management for internal
communication and follow-up of EuCARD results. The objectives of
this Work Package are as follows:
- To create and maintain the EuCARD web site for internal
and external communication and dissemination, including the
transnational access activities.
- To publish a periodic EuCARD
- To monitor the results and
publications and inform the project management and participants.
- To maintain a database for all
publications supported by EuCARD.
- To provide web-based tools to
support EuCARD project management and coordination.
- To promote awareness and
understanding of accelerator science in the community at large, which includes industrial partners, academics in other related
fields, teachers and students, by organizing outreach events such as public talks, lectures,
workshops, and online outreach via the web.
- To publish a dedicated series of
monographs on advanced accelerator technology.
Description of work:
Task 1. DCO Coordination and Communication. The purpose of this task is to oversee and coordinate all aspects of the DCO Work Package and ensure its consistency according to the project plan. The coordination duties include organizing DCO internal steering and annual meetings, setting up formal reviews, reporting to the project management, and distributing detailed information throughout the project. The task could include organizing workshops or specialized working sessions during the Annual EuCARD meetings.
Task 2. Dissemination and Outreach. The IT infrastructure and support needed by the DCO Work Package will be set up in this task. Web-based technology and a database system will be used to implement convenient information storage and recovery mechanisms for documents and publications, as well as for engineering data and methods if the need arises. Significant EuCARD results will be published in a series of monographs on advanced accelerator technology as they become available. Support will be given to the EuCARD management for coordination and scheduling, including calendars of meetings and workshops, an inventory of resources, an overview of transnational access facilities, and links to the websites of the other EuCARD Work Packages. A periodic Newsletter will be published on the EuCARD website, highlighting the project achievements. The last component of DCO will be an Education and Public Outreach (EPO) web-page which will promote awareness and understanding of accelerator science in the community at large, including potential industrial partners, students and teachers.
