The presentation will outline the initiatives taken by the European Commission to improve communication, outreach and dissemination of results from EU-funded research projects, and to facilitate the work of project contractors in this respect. Guidelines and best practices to help project participants in communicating and disseminating their research results will be presented and discussed. The European Commission draws in particular the attention of participants in FP6-funded projects on the fact that they can no longer ignore the ‘public communication’ dimension of their activity and that they are also in an excellent position to improve the image of science and technology among a broad public.
