Nowadays great scientific ideas alone are not enough...

We create and implement the best communication & dissemination strategy that will help you engage, educate and gain support from your key stakeholders.

Making sure you have an experienced communication company with a good track record on your side will show the evaluators you care about the translation of your project and its impact.

Our work process


Proposal stage

We join consortia at the proposal stage as a full partner. Our team works together with the consortium to complete the Impact section and takes the lead on the work package(s) dedicated to Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation of project results.


Project evaluation

Within 5 months, the project is evaluated. The Impact section is now weighing 1/3 of the total mark awarded to the project under Horizon 2020. See evaluation criteria on Participant Portal.

During the implementation of the project we create the project's communication strategy and implement all the activities described below. Throughout the project's duration, we monitor the impact of the project and its results on: researchers, policy-makers, the media, industry and the general public. Finally, we adapt our communication strategy on a yearly basis to maximise the project's global impact.
