Work Package 7

Management, Communication and Training in Communication

WP7 aims to comply with EDGES’ overall communication strategy. This strategy has been carefully planned to explore two complementary dimensions. On the one hand, WP7 has the goal of assuring the communication of the results of the research and of the activities of EDGES to a wider audience. Researchers will receive communication training to ensure their competencies in their direct relationship with broad audiences and the media. On the other hand, WP7 faces the challenge of intercultural communication and possible relationships with the discourses generated by Indigenous people and other minority or marginalised groups. WP7 comprises a series of activities to channel and amplify the power of these discourses in general audiences.
