EMPHASIS has joined forces with 12 ESFRI projects to develop instruments that increase the visibility of European research infrastructures to broader scientific communities, industry and strategic partners in third countries. The RI-VIS project was launched in February 2019.
Bi-regional recommendations for cooperation of research infrastructures
RI-VIS has published three white papers providing recommendations to increase collaboration between European research infrastructures and counterparts from Africa, Latin America and Australia. The papers are targeted at funders, policy makers and research infrastructure managers and collate the insights of 21 experts from research infrastructures and policymakers from the respective regions.
RI-VIS Communication Toolkit
The RI-VIS Communication Toolkit for European Research Infrastructures provides guidance on preparing communication materials. The toolkit includes designated sections for communicating with international research infrastructure counterparts, the private sector and policy makers.
Guidelines for how to build and implement a communication strategy for your research infrastructure. We outline step-by-step how to draft a strategy document providing explanations on the different contents it should include such as communication aims, stakeholder analyses and the key aspects to consider when developing a targeted communication plan.
Usage of communication methods and platforms
We analysed the communication tools used in Research Infrastructures around the globe. Our results show which tools are prioritised by the infrastructures for which audiences. Understanding the key channels for approaching different audience types can help when planning how to approach stakeholders for a new partnership.
