SKILLS project addresses a
new type of "codified knowledge" and new technological services that
can be used to better serve users and society. Europe can benefit of
the kind of results expected in promoting cultural inter-exchange of
skills and preserving the value of regional cultural heritages.
In order to maximize the project impact, SKILLS aims at
disseminating results as much as possible, by using different
dissemination and awareness channels. For this reason, it has
been planned the creation and management of a Target Audience
Database and of the DIGITAL-SKILLS Special Interest Group (SSIG).
The Target Audience Database is designed to collect both individual
and organizations interested in the topics addressed by the Project.
The Database records can be filled in either by a SKILLS
member or directly by a public internet user. The Target Audience
Database also contains member appointed as SSIG Member.
The SSIG is expected to rapidly become an even more
important Dissemination Tool, as the number of Members
increases and the usability of the prototypes help to make them
more widespread. This Group will allow the Consortium to establish a
fruitful two-ways communication among industrial, sport and medical
sectors and SKILLS Community.
Furthermore, the SKILLS integrated project addresses the direct
involvement of Industries both as end users as well as participants
to the development activities. SKILLS supports EU-SME policies by
pulling together a well-balanced consortium that includes two SME
partners. A fundamental way to involve SMEs in the project will
be through the Special Interest Group (SSIG) created in the
"Dissemination activities". The application of the new SKILLS
framework can increase the competitiveness of the SMEs, for
example reducing the time required for the training of the
employees and so decreasing costs. In this sense, it is
foreseen that several SMEs from different fields are interested
in the results of the project and become members of this SSIG group.
