Internal communication

The challenge inside

In Horizon2020 projects the communication & dissemination aspects sometimes are underestimated. This is no secret. But even if this is not the case, an important part of this task is often forgotten – the internal communication.

Think of this example: 50 people from all over Europe will be working together with strangers for 3 years, most of the time only via email, having different professional backgrounds, with no common mindset or working culture – on the contrary representing very different national traditions of cooperation, communication and management.

This is a challenge.

Ultimately, the outcome of the project depends on the quality of cooperation, which again depends on the quality of mutual understanding and communication within the group.
