Theme 5

Dissemination and Engagement

To ensure that TechOceanS maximises the economic, social and positive environmental impact of all innovations and learning generated through the project, Theme 5 is dedicated to effectively communicating, disseminating and transferring results, activities and knowledge. This will involve employing a robust strategy to engage with other research projects and institutions, those stakeholders who stand to benefit from TechOceanS’ outputs, policy makers and the general public. Theme 5 will strive to ensure that the results from this project find their way to the people who are best situated to use them for the betterment of our planet’s oceans and our understanding of them.
