Coordination: Actions undertaken to manage the project and to make sure it is implemented as planned
The management of the Joint Action and systematic monitoring of the activities done by Sciensano. This includes the day-to-day follow-up of the scientific, administrative and financial aspects. WP1 ensures that the contractual obligations are fulfilled and ensures the expected results are delivered as planned. It also establishes relationships with potential future stakeholders and advocates for health information and InfAct. More specifically, InfAct communicates with: the relevant directorate Generals and Expert Groups of the European Commission, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the World Health Organisation Europe (WHO), and other relevant international associations, projects and organisations such as IANPHI, ASPHER, EUPHA, TO-REACH, other Joint Actions, etc.
Dissemination: Actions undertaken to ensure that the results and deliverables of the project will be made available to the target group
This work package, led by Sciensano, and co-lead by GOG, ensures that the activities carried out by InfAct reach their target audience. InfAct aims to spread the information about its activities through publications, meetings, workshops, leaflets, a promotional video, a website and social media. The purpose is to (i) raise awareness about the relevance of health information and the need for a sustainable infrastructure among Member States and associated countries, (ii) inform the community about the challenges in EU health information, (iii) engage the community in health information activities, (iv) promote and support the use of the outcomes of InfAct in the community.
Evaluation: Actions undertaken to verify if the project is implemented as planned and reaches the objectives
This work package is responsible for the evaluation of the project. It is based on two processes: an internal evaluation and an external evaluation. The internal evaluation is practical and consists of a periodic evaluation in collaboration with the WP leaders. It also includes WP peer-review of the deliverables. The external evaluation produces critical reviews of the outcomes, tracks the progress of the project and provides strategic recommendations for the project. It is organised by external stakeholders with expertise in EU-wide action in the domain of public health with focus on health information (health status and health systems) and research.
