EXPLOITATION AND DISSEMINATION ACTIVITIES
All experimental results obtained by partners in this project for which
none of the partners can claim any feasible commercialization or patenting
interest will be made public and will be disseminated to the fullest extent
using all available means. Unrestricted results will be submitted to national
and international scientific and trade journals for publication. Furthermore,
results will be disseminated through international and national scientific
conferences and meetings on food safety and technology, international
and national seminars and training workshops for meat processors, retailers,
inspectors and other authorities, consumer organizations and other interested
parties. Means of dissemination provided by the Commission will also be
Data and models for the risk assessment of meat products together with
other current information related to this topic (i.e validated mathematical
models for pathogen growth, data for pathogen prevalence and concentration,
distribution temperature profiles, dose response data, inactivation models
and consumption patterns) will be collected and included in this Internet
site. Thus a Meat Microbial Risk Assessment Site will disseminate information
from the project to all interested parties. These include the scientific
community, meat industry, regulators, inspection authorities but will
also target non-specialist laboratories, SME’s and consumers.
Interaction with other relevant projects will be used also as means
Two leaflets will be prepared with information on the project.
These publication should be formulated in laymans language easily readable
by non-specialists. Copies will be sent to the Commission and to each
partner for display.
The first leaflet will be describing the objectives and methodology
of the project. A thousand copies of each leaflet will be produced of
which 200 will be submitted to the Commission and the rest will be distributed
by the partners.
A comprehensive leaflet will be prepared at the end of the project.
All the practical information created in the project will be disseminated
to the meat industry and retailers in simple words and diagrams.
A general Project Web-site with project information and results will
be established month 3 and updated every 3 months.
