Usage of communication methods and platforms

We analysed the communication tools used in Research Infrastructures around the globe. Our results show which tools are prioritised by the infrastructures for which audiences.

Understanding the key channels for approaching different audience types can help when planning how to approach stakeholders for a new partnership.
