Dissemination and exploitation of results, particularly knowledge exchange, are an essential part of all seven Work Packages in NORDBALT-ECOSAFE. Rather than reporting the results at the end of the project, we will continuously share and discuss approaches and preliminary results with the stakeholders in the six river basins as well as HELCOM and OSPAR and demonstrate products and tools to them as they become available. This is considered essential for ensuring that they are aligned with the needs and perceptions of the stakeholders. The iterative nature of our communication methods and demonstration activities stresses the importance of knowledge exchange during the entire project period (see Figure).
