The importance of communicating the projects results to the scientific community and the general public, as often stressed by the European Commission, is recognized and several actions and mechanisms will be put in place to achieve this. In addition, the project consortium will aim at the best possible commercial exploitation of the project results. To achieve these objectives, the dissemination and exploitation activities of UMRIDA will be coordinated and monitored by the dissemination and exploitation manager in close coordination with the project coordinator. Though this, a broad spectrum of scientists across Europe as well as potentially interested commercial companies will be covered.
All dissemination and exploitation activities will be planned in agreement with all the partners and constantly monitored by the WP leader. The dissemination manager and the project coordinator will evaluate the potential activities during the project and propose which activities should be performed in order to maximize the impact while respecting the available budget. The formal mechanism for disseminating and exploiting all technologies and capabilities is outlined by the three main objectives below:
1. Workshops for UQ and RDM.
Two workshops will be organized, at mid-term and at the end of the UMRIDA project, focused on UQ but also on systematic comparisons of robust design methodologies and results. To the best of our knowledge, no similar workshop has been organized previously, focused on aeronautic related design under uncertainties. The database created under Task 3.1 will form the basis of the workshop test cases.
The workshops are planned to be open and to attract participants from Europe and elsewhere, with the objective to gather additional input to the test cases, and to confront the UMRIDA objectives and progress with the worldwide developments.
2. Best practice Guide in UQ and RDM
In order to encourage and promote widely the application of UQ and RDM in the aeronautical industry, it is considered useful to collect the large amount of information that will be generated within WP2, WP3 and WP4, as well as through the workshops, under the form of a Best Practice Guide, providing guidelines and recommendations in the widespread application of UQ and RDM.
3. Provide a large widespread dissemination and exploitation of the UMRIDA results
These actions will also be completed by the publication of a book containing the main developments and results of the UMRIDA project, under the responsibility of WUT.
These three objectives are covered by the corresponding subtasks.
Task 5.1: Workshops on UQ and Robust design at mid-term and at end of project
Task 5.2: Best Practice Guide (BPG) for UQ and Robust Design methodologies,
Task 5.3: Exploitation and dissemination
All partners will participate in these three subtasks, presenting the results of their contributions to the tasks 3.2 and 4.2 at the workshops and will contribute with their ‘lessons learned’ to the BPG.
And obviously all will join in the common activities of dissemination and exploitation.
