Input to the Communication Plan

Please use this page to provide input/contributions to the Communcation Plan.

Examples from Other FP6 and FP7 Projects

The DoW states that the Communication Plan will include ‘Analysing support materials, messages and media used by FP6 and other FP7 projects’. We have gathered together a number of communication and dissemination plans from other projects but would now be grateful if APARSEN colleagues could share with us their experience of communications activities on previous projects or provide examples of successes and/or failures of communications efforts.

The example of ODE has been informative. Advantage was taken of a workshop at the European Parliament. A very nice brochure was very effective. It seems plain that to make an impression on people who might set the agenda, we need to recognise that official deiverables are not much use. We need to look for opportunities and be ready to prepare some professionally produced (i.e. edited by a journalist) material.

Suggestions for Communication Channels to Use

As we will be communicating results and information from all aspects of the APARSEN project we would like to welcome suggestions from all APARSEN colleagues of appropriate communications channels to be used and particular milestones/deliverables/events that should be marked.

We could start mapping out a book which would accompany the training courses.

Comments on Suggestion to Broaden Scope of Communication Activities

At the meeting we discussed the possibility of how wide we should open up communications and what audiences we should try to reach, in particular (given the broad ranging scope of APARSEN itself) if it would be appropriate to attempt to engage (at least in some small way) with the general public/more popular publications. It would be useful to hear opinions on this in particular and on potential audiences in general.

We could invite pretty well everyone we can think of to have access to the wiki. At the extreme we could make (most of) the wiki readable to everyone, but of course only people with usernames/passwords could write.

Examples of Digital Preservation Glossaries/Terminology Lists

As part of the work in WP44 we will be creating a common terminology for use in all communications and this will be created through an analysis and comparison of existing resources. We are currently aware of the Glossary on the APA website ( and the DPC’s Jargon Buster ( but would welcome pointers to similar resources elsewhere.
