Work Package 6

Dissemination, Exploitation and Communication


The overall aim of WP6 is to maximise the scientific, economic, and societal impacts of METHYLOMIC by implementing appropriate strategies for dissemination, exploitation and communication, and setting-up stakeholder workshops and cutting-edge trainings.


The activities of this WP are governed by a shared consortium level plan for the dissemination and exploitation of the results. The project and its results will be promoted via a series of communication activities specifically aimed at relevant target groups. Stakeholder engagement, training and sustainability activities complement the dissemination and exploitation plan and further enhance the expected impacts of METHYLOMIC.


Dr Gionata Fiorino (Vita-Salute San Raffaele University) will coordinate all measures to maximise impact and lead WP6. With his track-record, Dr Fiorino is well equipped to roll-out the dissemination, exploitation and communication strategies and chair the Dissemination, Exploitation, and Intellectual Property Committee (DEIPC). This committee has a key role in the management of innovations and will advise on the management of knowledge, intellectual property and on other innovation-related activities in the project. The DEIPC will consist of representatives of the partners’ technological transfer departments and all Work Package leaders. The WP6 team will be assisted by communication experts from the participating universities, ECCO and EFCCA to complement activities with narratives and visualisations as much as possible. In addition, a Patient Advisory Council will be established.
