IMI1 project dissemination
IMI1 project partners have a contractual obligation to disseminate the foreground (Art. II.34 of the Annex II – General Conditions of the Grant Agreement). For more information please check our guidelines on dissemination for IMI1 projects.
IMI2 project dissemination
Dissemination is also an important activity for all IMI2 projects, a fact that is recognised in the Model Grant Agreement for IMI2 projects, which requires that you make your scientific work and results openly available, as early as possible and in a form that is an easily accessible, understandable and re-usable.
We have created guidelines on dissemination for IMI2 projects which provide an overview of the rules related to the dissemination of results that apply to IMI2, together with tips and links to help you prepare and report on dissemination activities.
How we can help you – using IMI to help you disseminate your project results
IMI will support your dissemination efforts and raise the visibility of your project results through:
- publication of project information and results on the IMI website: project factsheets, success stories from projects, newsletter and the IMI Annual Activity Report;
- additional communications channels: IMI LinkedIn and Twitter accounts, brochures, leaflets, presentations given at IMI events or by organising your participation in other relevant sectoral events.
We have also started building a catalogue of accessible tools generated by our projects. Send us a link to the research resource/tool you would like to make available to the research community together with a very short description. Please also indicate the access conditions to the resource and we will publish it on the IMI website.
Dissemination advice and resources from the European Commission
CORDIS is the European Commission's primary portal for promoting results of EU-funded research projects, and it does so through:
- publication of project information submitted through the Funding & Tenders Portal: project factsheet, public deliverables, publishable report summaries;
- communication support: CORDIS Wire, News, Research EU magazines;
- dissemination products: Results Packs, Results-in-Brief.
IMI will actively work to raise your visibility within the European institutions by proposing your project for relevant EU events, reports, articles and briefings.
