Policy Brief - Communication

Policy Brief

SheepNet was initiated in November 2016, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

Based on the general findings of the project , the recommendations for improving communication and technology transfer are as below:

Communication is vital for the success for any project and to foster uptake by stakeholders. We recommend:

  • Have a dedicated fund for communication and to maintain and promote the results of projects for a number of years after they are complete,
  • Extend the duration of projects (at least 4 years) to enable the establishment and maintenance of effective communication networks to ensure maximum technology transfer,
  • To finance extra costs for the translation of key communications to ensure maximum opportunities for the uptake of technologies across the EU.
