WP leader: Professor Xavier Manteca-Vilanova,

Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona Spain


The core objective of WP5 is to increase the impact of the project through effective dissemination of project results throughout the laying hen sector on national and EU level, and scaling up the practice driven innovation model both within the laying hen sectors and across other livestock sectors.

The core tasks in this WP are:

  • Developing and implementing a dissemination strategy for the external communication of results.
  • Consolidating an innovation support “package” including guidelines to facilitate practice driven innovation through innovation networks, communication tools, extension manuals and training materials
  • Roll out of online e-learning CPD training programmes
  • Enabling/facilitating the scaling up of practice driven innovation via innovation networks for both the laying hen and other livestock sectors
  • Identifying and compiling strategic laying hen research priorities and recommendations for policy makers
