Dissemination

Dissemination aims to ensure to reach the largest possible target audience while advertising the project results

Communication and dissemination campaigns will be developed and implemented to ensure broad awareness rising of the project outcomes to the target groups, some of the actions to take are here described:

  • Newsletters will be written by FIAB with inputs from WP leaders every 6 months under the direction of FIAB and published to report the main developments achieved in the project and communicated through the different channels presented in the dissemination plan as well as through the stakeholders from each partner database. The newsletter will be issued in English and partners responsible for dissemination material will translate it in their country language and send it out through their network
  • 7 Communication workshops (LVA, AERES, CONFAGRI, ACTIA, FIAB, ICOS, PA) which will be organised during the project to involve, start the strategy roll-out and engage Farmers, foresters and industry organizations, VET and education providers in each partner country, but also in Europe as a whole. An additional one will be made in Brussels.
  • Ongoing dissemination to the media will be carried out, including press releases and articles in order to reach the different targeting audience. These articles will be published in relevant journals depending on the public target to be reached.  Dissemination towards EIP-AGRI focus group will be performed by UHOH.
  • FDE will disseminate the project results through the National Food and Drink Industry Federations, and the National Food Technology Platforms to the Food Industry, at the different stages of development of the project.
  • Videos of interviews will be made during VET training in local languages and posted on the various youtube channels of the partners and on the instagram/youtube channel of the project (AC3A, UCLM, LVA, AP, PA, INFOR, UNITO, ICOS, AERES)
  • Social media challenge will be implemented among initial training student on Instagram to impact learner’s population by VET and training providers (AC3A, UCLM, LVA, AP, PA, INFOR, UNITO, ICOS, AERES)
  • Promotion of agriculture careers and gender equality will also be promoted through the project’s events
  • Google AdWords campaign will be issued when the training content is available to impact the target groups by UNITO
  • A final conference will be organised in Brussels with the help of LLL-P and the umbrella organisations (FDE, Copa Cogeca WP RES; EFFAT, CEPI).

Surveys

Have your Say on the Future Skills Needs of Agri-Food and Forestry Sectors Across Europe

We now ask you to take 15 minutes to “HAVE YOUR SAY” by completing the Survey and then to share the link with other stakeholders across industry, including Agricultural Advisors, Agri-Food Companies, Co-operatives, Education Providers (Higher Education & VET Providers), Farmers, Foresters, Forest Industries, Policy Makers and Students or any others this may be relevant to, across the broader value chain.

  • Your views will help us to further develop training curricula in the context of the ERASMUS+ SSA project “FIELDS” which is hoped that will eventually be used in training institutions in different European countries. You may, in the future, have some benefits from participating in this study as its aim is to ultimately help workers in the Agri-food and Forestry sectors to be better trained for current and future market and social demands.
  • Direct Link for the Survey can also here found  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FIELDS_Surveys_Final

The information provided in the surveys responses will remain totally confidential and will only be used in an aggregate manner to identify underlying trends and demands across European member states.

Please feel free to pass this survey on to as many persons within your broader value chain / stakeholder network, that operate in areas of Sustainability, Digitalisation, Bioeconomy, Soft Skills and Business/Entrepreneurship Skills.

Your time and interest in completing the survey is much appreciated.

If there is any aspect of the project that you would like to discuss further, or feel you may need support with, please do not hesitate to get in touch via email to:Francesca Sanna: francesca.sanna@unito.it
