Working Group 5: Networking and Knowledge Sharing

Working Group 5

WG5 has the critical task of maintaining communications with all relevant stakeholders and policy makers.

WG5 will also ensure that the methods developed under WG2, WG3 and WG4 are effectively disseminated to the broader scientific community.

To this end, WG5 is responsible for (i) attracting all relevant stakeholders and policymakers to participate in the action, (ii) the creation and maintenance of the action’s website in which all deliverables will be deposited and freely available to the scientific community and (iii) the maintenance of a network/mailing list for scientists and stakeholders/policy makers interested in these methods.

Most importantly, WG5 (in connection with WG1) will be responsible for setting up the International BLCM Society and lead the preparations for the first conference of this Society.

Tasks
T5.1: Disseminate, in an effective way, the outputs of WG2, WG3 and WG4.
T5.2: Create and maintain the necessary networking tools for participants, stakeholders, public bodies and general audience.
T5.3: Create and maintain the necessary media for the dissemination of the training activities of this Action.
