RE: EU research results - how to improve dissemination from producers '
toggle
In the previous thread it was suggested that few adjustments might help proper and wider dissemination of research results within the EU context of projects

1. it would be useful to have a unique and searchable database of all EU projects allowing people to search references and contents not only on the ongoing projects but also on closed ones, which often disappear once they are closed for lack of updating or of continuity i

2. it would be quite important to have materials produced not only for a wider dissemination but keeping in mind specific sub-groups of users which might find it difficult to appreciate documents and contents which are too technical or highly specific

3. with regard to people working in informal science teaching, it would be useful to have access not only to research published in scientific journals but more to research-actions experiences which do not usually get published and are thus much more difficult to get to know

now, one major point is also who should be the ones producing all of these 'intermediate' materials, the same producers (scientists, social researchers, practitioners who actually undertake some practical experiences) or professional science communicators?

If science communicators are going to be involved, which are the pros and cons of yet another translation step from production of basic research (both scientific and research on practices) onto readable docs for anyone to read and use?

If a searcheable, comprehensive data base of projects and their outcomes existed – including those that were defined action-research projects – with tags and abstracts, probably I'd still try to go through the relevant papers, no matter how technical; or at least I'd find out more easily who to get in touch with in order to have more specific or more general information; or, anyway, I'd know who to have read the hardest papers on my behalf and the discuss them with me...

So I think setting the data base could be a priority with respect to a “translation” for a broader audience. Provided that the projects and outcomes are published in English too... Otherwise a translation would be very handy, thank you.
