The DISARM information and publicity plan will aim at advertising the project activities to the relevant authorities, stakeholders and the general public in Greece, Bulgaria and Cyprus. This activity will be endorsed by all partners under the coordination of the Management Committee and the results will be achieved through the promotion of the project’s web page and of the integrated observatory and early warning systems for drought and wildland fires.
Each partner will be responsible to inform the public bodies and the mass media in its own country, to organize local meetings in order to disseminate the project results and in particular to illustrate the capabilities and functionalities of the developed system to public bodies and to specific groups of potential stakeholders.
Promotional and information material (web-based advertisements, presentations, leaflets, brochures, posters) will be produced to meet the needs of a versatile target audience. The main project presentations and brochures will be translated in three languages (English, Greek and Bulgarian) to reach an international wider audience as well as the local communities. In this task the partners will be assisted by the observer partners involved in the project.
The project results and achievements will be also disseminated in international conferences, favoring thus new cooperation opportunities, and published in international scientific journals. Moreover, popular science articles will be submitted to magazines/newspapers to reach a wider generic public.
Two main milestones of the publicity strategy are foreseen: (a) the realization of the DISARM web page, including not only information on the project but mainly continuously updated observations and model forecasts/warnings, provided by the system and (b) the launch of the mobile application, available both for android and iOS environments.
