This report is a dossier of all the relevant dissemination and communication material developed from Month 1 to Month 18 of the WHY Project. This report contains the summary of the communications and dissemination actions carried out and an assessment of the impact. Furthermore some adjustments to the D&C strategy (D7.1) is included, as due to the SARS-COVID-19 Pandemic, some key events planned needed to be rearranged.
Furthermore, most originally planned face-to-face stakeholder engagement events also took place online. By mid-2022 we hope that the pandemic situation allows a more extensive face-to-face engagement of stakeholder, we must acknowledge that the online operation of half of the project will have an impact on the upcoming period as well. Work Package 7 activities are dedicated to dissemination and communication, as well as the exploitation of results.
