Coordination and Communication
General administration of the project involves the coordination of nine technical subprojects encompassed within the BAYSICS network. Reinforcing the project’s inter- and trans-disciplinary approach in regards to content, methodical and practical implementation is of central importance here. Specific coordination measures include the organisation of regular joint meetings, the development and implementation of project-specific ethics guidelines, as well as the drafting of a collaborative manuscript outlining a detailed communication, publication and dissemination strategy for all results. A particular focus of the work is to establish, expand and maintain a broad communication and press network. Via customized information bodies, internal networks and mass media sites, contributions tailored to each target group will be published on a regular basis to help promote a sustainable interest in BAYSICS citizen-science and research.
