Hello everyone. We have just a couple of days ahead of us before the deadline. Today, I want to give you some hints on how to complete the dissemination and evaluation of project’s results boxes.
First of all, its important to underline that the Erasmus+ programme has a renewed interest in dissemination. Therefore, it’s not only about the IDEA, the PROBLEM, the ACTIVITIES you plan in order to solve the problem in the realm of your EU DEVELOPMENT PLAN, but it is also about how do you intend to share the outcomes of your project.
A good dissemination plan will share the concrete results of the project; not just inform people that the project has taken place.
“It is fundamental that your dissemination plan is realistic and relevant to the size and scope of the project that you plan to deliver.” Keep in mind that dissemination is needed to:
extend the impact;
engage stakeholders and target groups;
share solutions and know how;
influence policy and practice;
develop new partnerships.
A DISSEMINATION PLAN MIGHT LOOK LIKE THE FOLLOWING (From UK NA):
This leads to Section I.3. Evaluation in which you have to explain why or why not the project was a success. You might plan to have a
PRE-DEPARTURE EVALUATION: in which you try to assess the situation before the mobility experience;
IN ITINERE EVALUATION: in which you assess what the mobility is triggering in your group of participants. This could be though and managed in cooperation with the hosting organizations. This also helps fine-tuning your project if you realize that the activities are failing to bring the expected results.
FINAL EVALUATION: in which can give a complete picture of what has been the line of improvement that your project has brought forth.
KEY ELEMENTS OF A DISSEMINATION PLAN?
SOME OF THE MOST COMMON DISSEMINATION ACTIVITIES:
project or organisational websites;
meetings and visits to key stakeholders;
dedicated discussion opportunities such as information sessions, workshops, (online) seminars, training courses, exhibitions, demonstrations, or peer reviews;
targeted written material such as reports, articles in specialised press, newsletters, press releases, leaflets or brochures;
audiovisual media and products such as radio, TV, YouTube, Flickr, video clips, podcasts or apps;
project branding and logos;
existing contacts and networks.
