WP4- Dissemination and Exploitation - IQPharm Dissemination & Exploitation
Dissemination occurs through all stages of the project. The TG 4.1 will prepare the Dissemination and Exploitation Plan within the first year. This task group will be responsible to ensure timely and appropriate dissemination of the project objectives, progress and results to consortium partners, including associate partners, and all the stakeholders.
The main objective is to communicate and share the knowledge and results acquired and obtained through the project, and build a high-profile at national level. The project activities and outputs will be disseminated to all stakeholders, as well as the wider society. The progress towards accomplishment of project objectives will be timely and appropriately publicized, to inform and further engage consortium and non-consortium partners in project activities.
In line with the overall project objectives, dissemination strategy will contribute to the awareness about the advances in pharmacy education in the EU. Special attention will be given to the European dimension of the project, convergence towards the EU practices and policies related to promotion of active learning methodologies, functional knowledge retention and challenges related to student progress testing, pharmacy licensure examination and continuing professional development, as well as the support received from the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education Program.
The stated objectives will be reached through a range of activities, planned in line with the project timeline and budget available.
Dissemination activities will be carried out through:
- creation of high-profile project identity (logo, website, social networks profiles);
- development and regular update of project website;
- design and distribution of appropriate promotional materials;
- publications and presentations of project activities and outcomes;
- organisation of project Open-days;
- communication with the press and media;
- creation of professional networks through social media.
Project events and external events and conferences will present additional opportunities for dissemination of the project progress and results, not only among the partner HEIs, but also among non-consortium partners who will have the opportunity to take part in these activities. IQPharm Introductory Symposium will bring together consortium and non-consortium partners with the aim to raise the awareness of the importance of project objectives and the need for their engagement in the project activities.
IQPharm logo and Erasmus+ Programme logo will be made clearly visible on the project website, as well as project presentations and publications in order to make the project recognizable and acknowledge the EU contribution.
IQPharm Newsletters will be prepared bi-annually to report on the project activities and outcomes achieved and distributed on project website and by e-mail.
IQPharm Final Symposium will be organized as a major dissemination event aimed to present the project achievements to consortium and non-consortium partner institutions and the wider community.
Students who will attend the improved teaching and assessment processes and meet the anticipated educational outcomes, as well as upskilled teaching staff will be the best evidence of project results exploitation. Development of the quality assessment tools, experiential education framework, and upskilled teaching staff, along with the developed proposals for regulatory changes will provide the foundation for further advancement and continuous improvement.
