WP7: Creating Shared Value

Participants in WP7.

In WP7 the knowledge generated within the project will be implemented through interaction with stakeholders to create shared value. Their feedback on PrimeDSF and system shortcomings will feed the iterative development process of WP6. In a second step, other selected stakeholders will be trained in the use of PrimeDSS as peer educators. In the third step general stakeholders will be trained in the use of the toolbox in workshops and by social media and tutorial videos. These workshops will be organized around major trade shows and conferences to increase their reach and impact. In addition, the dissemination activities will consist of a pro-active presence in social media especially aimed at the five fish commodity segments. The social media also serves as a key role, both for communicating the outcome of the project, but no less as potential marketing tools that may influence European consumers’ choices.The outcome of this WP will be trained stakeholders, disseminated results and outcomes, ensured IPR and commercial exploitation of PrimeDSS (SO7).

  2. Disseminating newly generated knowledge to the ‘Blue Growth’ community
  3. Contributing to the European marine knowledge base by making knowledge and data generated by PrimeFish available for use and re-use (unless protected for IPR and patent reasons)
  4. Entering knowledge exchange and transfer by engaging in European and international knowledge platforms and networks related to PrimeFish topics
  5. Contributing to skills’ development of researchers and professionals by providing training and seminars as well as setting up and communicating skills catalogues for a future qualified workforce 6.
