Role of UIIN in the Project

UIIN will be responsible for the dissemination and exploitation of the project and its results. With access to key contacts in academia and industry, and with various communication and distribution channels reaching a large variety of European stakeholders, UIIN will ensure that the value created will also be exploited. Key activities of UIIN include planning activities (e.g. dissemination, exploitation and sustainability plan), preparation activities (e.g. corporate design, promotional material and further extension of existing contact databases) and implementation activities (e.g. communication, events, agreements). UIIN will also support the HEIs in the development of the Entrepreneurship Promotional Campaign.
