Since the early days of Sparks & Co in 2014, our mission has been to communicate about science in the best and brightest way.

We’ve been working hard and we are now consultants, subcontractors or partners on 8 on-going EU-funded projects! Based on our experience through these projects and the partnerships we had with the different stakeholders in EU projects, we decided to launch our own training courses to share our expertise on the writing of the Impact section with you.

This webinar is a follow-up to our free webinar “Introduction to Impact in Horizon 2020“, where the concepts of Communication, Dissemination, and IP where quickly described. In this 3-hour long session, you will learn Emma’s techniques to create a comprehensive Communication and Dissemination strategy from the European call page!
