The European Commission has launched a new service dedicated to dissemination of research projects’ results. The Common Dissemination Booster (CDB) aims at providing 7th Framework Programme and Horizon 2020 Project Consortia with the knowledge and skills to bring together results from several projects that are suitable to be disseminated together, forming a portfolio of project results; to better map and target their stakeholders; and to disseminate projects’ results to targeted potential users at European level and beyond.

The CDB is not substituting nor duplicating existing dissemination activities at individual project level. It aims at maximising the dissemination and exploitation potential by leveraging the synergies amongst related projects with a dedicated service offering. The CDB services aim to bridge the gap between research results and exploitation, by helping the project consortia:

  • concentrate the dissemination on the demand side aspects of knowledge circulation
  • bring together results from several projects that are suitable to be disseminated together, forming a portfolio of projects, showing both alternative and complementary results
  • better map and target the stakeholders
  • ensure that results of Research and Innovation activities are rendered openly available to those who can make best use of it, at European level and beyond, as early as possible, and in an easily accessible, understandable and reusable form
