Work Package 8


Communication, Outreach and Exploitation

What we do


Work Package 8 brings together four teams: Outreach, Communication, Partnering and Innovation, to deliver an external engagement effort to support the goal of delivering the EBRAINS RI as one of the legacies of the HBP FET Flagship. The Work Package envisages the four teams working together and supporting an HBP, Consortium-wide, dissemination taskforce.

How we are organised


WP8 has seven key Tasks supporting its framework:

Task T8.1 Management and Coordination manages the coordination of WP8 and its linkages with activities in other Work Packages.

Task T8.2 Outreach and Education delivers high impact Outreach and Education event-based activities in close coordination with other WP8 tasks and the wider HBP Consortium.

Task T8.3 Communication manages External Communication, Internal Communication, and Marketing.

Task T8.4 Partnering aims to increase the number of consortia and organisations with formal collaboration agreements with HBP/EBRAINS, either as Partnering Projects, or under new legal instruments.

Task T8.5 Exploitation of EBRAINS will accelerate the exploitation of the HBP technologies and EBRAINS Service Categories.

Task T8.6 Industrial Engagement contributes to involve industrial actors in the co-development and/or utilisation of EBRAINS tools and services.

Task T8.7 Media Relations ensures consistent high-level messaging in close alignment with EBRAINS and HBP project leadership.
