The project will set up a website to be used as the main interface towards the stakeholders who are interested in the work and achievements of the project. It will also act as a communication and dissemination channel for the project results and for involving and enlarging the stakeholders‘ community. A dedicated section of the same or possibly a separate website will be set up as a SharePoint for the consortium, containing all institutional information, including working documents and deliverables.
The UPRIGHT web strategy will merge traditional web dissemination tools, such as e-Newsletters, and advanced web communication features, based on 2.0 instruments, into a unique concept. This innovative approach takes into account the most recent trends in web communication patterns. The project website will be designed and continuously updated in such a way to include:
- Interface with web 2.0 tools and the UPRIGHT social network pages (e.g. LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc.);
- Video and streaming facilities
- Project‘s public results, press releases, eNewsletters on UPRIGHT related topics; specific RSS feeds and other automated news services; links to major websites and portals, including those managed by the European Commission; articles and interviews around the project and related topics written by professional journalists when available.
The first complete version of the project website will be available by M6. All partners will also include a reference to the project and provide links to the project site on their respective websites. The website setup and maintenance will be coordinated by FBK, with the co-operation of all other partners for content provision and site population. It is foreseen that the website will be maintained (and even expanded) after the end of the project. Finally, as an added value to the task profiles in social networks such as LinkedIn and a Twitter micro-blog system account will be created
