SolACE is a multi-actor project, which aims to engage a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including end users, in order to effectively disseminate the results and improve water and nutrient use efficiency in Europe. Disseminating information about the work that is being done and the results that have been achieved is therefore a priority for the project.
In order to do so effectively, we have developed a dissemination plan, which outlines how we will implement a broad spectrum of dissemination tools and instruments. We have already built the project website, which provides detailed information about various aspects of the project. It also includes frequent news updates and displays our twitter feed. In addition to twitter, SolACE also has a project Facebook page. Relevant project documents have also been made available on Zenodo, a repository for EU-funded research projects. We have already uploaded the project flyer, project poster, presentations and proceedings from the first stakeholder meeting, and more. The first SolACE video, which outlines the overall goal of the project and the work that is being done in each workpackage, is available on the SolACE YouTube page.
Throughout the project, we will continue to produce publications about the results in the general press, as well as specialized farmer’s press. As the project progresses, we will also produce videos, factsheets, and policy briefs about the farmer networks, field trials, results and more. A special focus will be put on the easily understandable practice abstracts in the Common EIP-AGRI format in order to enable wide uptake among practitioners, to make the research visible to the target groups, and facilitate information sharing in the EU agricultural knowledge and information system (AKIS).
