The objective of Task4 (WP8) is twofold :
- supporting activity of other tasks by implementing an electronic system
of information exchange among Partners,
- dissemination of results of DOLPHINS Concerted Action to academics,
policy-makers, public institutions, consumers and citizens, firms and
This Task will accompany the activity of DOLPHINS
Concerted Action along the whole period (three years).
Task4 will have a service role for the whole Concerted Action, in order
to provide a tool to collect works and databases and to ease exchanges
of documents, researche results, suggestions and opinions among partners.
The tool, in the form of a Web Site, will have also an important dissemination
role (in particular during Task2 and Task3), in order to make results
of Concerted Action circulated within academics, policy-makers, public
institutions, consumers and citizens, firms and other institutions involved
Task4 will work in parallel with Tasks 1, 2 and 3, on the basis of guidelines
formulated during Task0 by the Steering Committee.
The main instrument implemented by WP8 is the DOLPHINS Web Site, which
will contain a restricted area, aiming at supporting information and researche
exchanges among participants to Concerted Action and a public area where
the results of the action will be accessible. In particular, a synthesis
of results of partners' research activities, a database on researches
on OLPs, a database on publications on OLPs, a database on research Institutions
working on OLPs and documents produced by workpackages during the action
will be put on-line on the Web Site DOLPHINS.
In order to build databases, the responsible and assistants will collect
from each Partner information about researches and publications on OLPs
and information on research Institutions working on OLPs. Information
must be given by each partner according to a track record given by responsible.
The Web Site will collect also DOLPHINS meeting proceedings and other
publications of the researchers involved in the action.
