The deliverable D10.10: Plan for dissemination and exploitation of +CityxChange project results 4 was submitted by ISOCARP Institute with contributions from NTNU, FAC and R2M in December 2022. The executive summary of the deliverable is available below and the full deliverable is at the end for download:
“This document is the yearly update of the Communications, Development & Exploitation (CDE) plan at the state of October 2022. It is a revised version of D10.9: Plan for dissemination and exploitation of +CityxChange project results 4, and its previous versions D10.1, D10.6, and D10.8 which provide the framework for dissemination and exploitation activities of the +CityxChange project (connected to Task 10.1: Communication and Dissemination Management). This document is revised annually and supersedes the previous version. It is composed of:
- The outline of the communication goals;
- The context in which the goals have to be implemented;
- The formulation of a strategy and a detailed plan;
- The organisation, tasks and roles; and
- The means or delivery channels.
The deliverable provides the updated overall plan, an overview of the communication activities of the first four years, the achieved outreach through different channels, and a compilation of the preparatory internal and external activities which aim at supporting the further process of communicating and disseminating the project and its progress and outcomes.
The purpose of this version is to to update the various aspects of project’s CDE dimensions and activities, following a shift to an increasingly online and virtual world of working and communication since the COVID-19 pandemic. As the project moves into its final year, it has begun to focus on supporting scalability and replicability, and disseminating replicable pathways to help achieve sustainable urban ecosystems with lower emissions and 100% renewable energy on a large scale. Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) developed during the project’s duration aim to support scalability by expanding within existing urban areas and existing infrastructure. Replicability is achieved by sharing and exploiting processes to develop and implement solutions in new cities driving climate-neutrality.“
