Second key activity of Uniresearch is in the dissemination of project results and facilitation of technology and marketing. Activities involve the design, setup and maintenance of the tools (project websites, project flyers and newsletters), the organization of workshops and (final) project events, creation and organization of exploitation strategy seminars.
