WP7 Science Communication and Participation

Lead: Fraunhofer IMS, Dr. Gerd vom Bögel

The network is not intended as a closed system, but as an open system to attract new research and industry partners. In this respect, supporting concepts are considered in WP7. Excellent scientific publications and workshops at national and international conferences will improve communication with scientific communities for future cluster initiatives. On the other hand, industry workshops and public relations work will also be used to raise awareness of the topic among the general public. Raising awareness among industry, students and the public sector in particular is crucial for long-term success. The central point of contact is the network’s office, which organizes the respective communication measures with the communication experts at the locations.
