  • Dissemination – project management: planning, organisation, management, execution and control
  • Tailor-made project solutions for different target-groups – B2B, B2C, scientific communities

The communication, dissemination and exploitation activities are key in supporting a project’s output and achieving the planned impacts. nova has extensive experience in implementing and executing these crucial activities in national and international projects. Dissemination and exploitation plans structure the dissemination and exploitation activities on projects, resulting in communication activities tailored to the specific objective and targeted at the relevant stakeholders including industry, policymakers and society.

Naturally, we maintain long-term partnerships and media relationships beyond our ongoing projects. If you are interested in working with us, get in touch.
