 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The overall aim of CommHERE is to improve communication on the outcome of EU funded health research projects to the media, the general public and other target groups including the EC in all of Europe. The CommHERE consortium comprises 10 partners, all research institutions active in the health research area. All partners are responsible for the coordination of EU-funded health research projects. This strong EU research connection is crucial for the proposed project plan, since it gives the consortium the possibility to work in close contact with the actual performers of health research. The general concept of CommHERE is to act on parallel levels which both are developed during the project period.

On the one hand there will be an increase in actual communication activities on ongoing research directed towards the media, various stakeholders and the general public by production of press releases, virtual texts and images, and outreach activities. Basic tools and guidelines for this, applicable on a European level, will be prepared, used and developed. On the other hand – for a long-term sustainable effect – the project participants will work closely with the PIs and other representatives of new and ongoing research projects to encourage and motivate them, by giving tools, feed-back and incentives for continuous communication also outside of the scientific community.

All activities will initially be made on a local level, within each of the participant’s institutions, but towards a European audience. The guidelines, experiences and any good examples will successively be spread nationally and between countries. A network of communication officers from all parts of Europe will stimulate future collaboration, sharing of experiences and competence building.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU-funded initiative based on local communication support to EU-funded researchers had a visible impact on the communication of research findings and medical breakthroughs to stakeholders beyond the scientific community.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The project http://www.commhere.eu/ (COMMHERE) (Communication of European health research) comprised a nine-partner consortium of institutions active in health research. All had experience and responsibility for coordinating EU-funded health research projects, and all members were professional communication or administration officers. The project thus had a strong base to achieve its goal of improving the understanding of health-related topics for all and boost awareness of funding support for health research in Europe.

Initially, local networks were built with researchers funded by FP7 Health within their own institutions. Communication activities focused on media and audiences beyond the scientific community, and included media releases, online activities and outreach events on a national, European and international level.

As baseline analysis 51 Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) Health projects coordinated by partner institutions were identified to highlight previous successful approaches to public relations. An article summarising the findings of this work was published in the LINK magazine of the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA).

Tools and guidelines were developed and subsequently used for coordinating production and distribution of health research news. For example, various online Twitter accounts supported distribution at European level and the http://www.horizonhealth.eu/ (HorizonHealth.eu) web portal was launched for the general public.

EU-funded health research projects were presented at local science festivals, and also in Wroclaw, Poland and in Prague, Czech Republic. Other activities included organisation of popular scientific sessions at ESOF and AAAS conferences, a Research Forum on Active Ageing for policymakers in Brussels, and a study visit to cutting-edge research institutions in Barcelona for science journalists.

Evaluation of project work and outcomes showed that mentoring and coaching activities had a visible impact on the quantity and quality of communication activities. Topical sessions and local outreach events were particularly successful for communicating the activities of health research projects.

COMMHERE has enhanced and boosted communication of ongoing research, and established a long-term impact through close collaboration with research leaders and representatives of ongoing and new research projects.
