Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes: communicating and disseminating Fedora in its making

led by formicablu, fb, Italy

Communication is key for the FEDORA development, implementation and dissemination, therefore WP6 is transversal and crucial and has to take place from the beginning of the project until the very end. Networking strategies and interchange with other relevant projects and experiences in fields of research as well as of informal and formal science communication will contribute to enrich FEDORA communication and to make it more relevant.


The objectives of WP6 are:

  • a) To design strategies and tools to communicate FEDORA effectively at different levels (institutional, individual and societal) and to take into account needs and expectations of the different stakeholders involved in the project;
  • b) To conceive and design a project storytelling with an original voice and personality by producing and releasing eye- catching and recognisable project identity to be used both for digital and offline activities;
  • c) To implement multimedia production to showcase the project and its outcomes, including social media channels;
  • d) To present FEDORA in all relevant forums, conference and events where diverse stakeholders will be present.
