Research Engagement & Marcomms
Research Engagement & marcomms synergies at RENAM & EaPConnect project
(Re)Introducing TF-RED: exploring topics of mutual interest & a potential joint meeting - introducing SIG-Marcomms to TF-RED
TF-RED interview series
Common marketing materials across services from a global persepctive with user community target -
how to promote ITF across TF-RED space and how they can feed into that.
How to share needs and requirements from both sides and discussion around that. - How can teams share at national / global level, to create added-value stories.
What types of info the marcomms teams are looking for from res eng in order to create materials and user stories?
What does success look like in Res Eng? what are the outputs of a successful process?
Breakout rooms where can discuss specifics.
How does engagement with researchers work in different countries? What are the most effective tools and channels? eg AARnet has a round table event which engages at a higher level in hierarchy. TF-RED survey before Christmas - identified 3 tyoes of res eng : 1) starting - trying to find fit within organisation, 2) established - good grasp but still learninig, 3) old hands - future forward focused in their approach. So this makes a pathway for development - how to align with marcomms support?
Is it also a goal to have more international project engagement and make it visible on a national level? Depends on which stage of development.

|NRENs and WCAG standard - PSNC developed a service about the war in 1920 between Poland and Bolshevik Russia, historical interactive map. Media picked it up. One disability activiist said the page is digitally unavailable and sent it to the Ministry of digitisation. What is the law in Poland about WCAG? Had 7 days to make a special report for this citizen on what can do for the digital availability of the service as PSNC and the service are public funded. EU has special legal obligation to be digitally available. In fact just a few simple things are needed. 2016 directive passed. Until 23rd June 2021 all services and pages should be done and then can be fined. Every web page in metadata and functionality must be done. Who can use WCAG standards if we can't. Laetitia is in the process. Every video should have an audio description. PDFs should also be explained.|
