Description: 

This WP will exploit the the outcomes of the work developed in WP1-WP3 to implement the Forensic Computing pathway, at partner country universities. The work involves taking a systematic approach to implementing the courses by applying the new curuilum and to evaluate the developed educational and pedagogical approaches and assess their outcomes. This also involves taking the necessary due processes and obtaining necessary approvals from academic councils at partner country universities to run the program.

The nature of the project involves a wide spectrum of people from ministries, universities and the industry, which makes dissemination a natural effect. Hence, all possible target groups and stakeholders of the project (ex. students, staff, employers of students, academic administration staff and ministries of higher education) will be reached via the comprehensive dissemination techniques implemented in FORC project. Results of the project and its activities will be disseminated to the target groups.

The dissemination plan will be created at the beginning of the project and will define what dissemination is and describe what exactly needs to be disseminated, the target audience, the dissemination channels and the dissemination materials that are going to be used in the project. The strategy will look at the also look at existing dissemination channels available such as membership publications of different organizations, newsletters, websites, meetings, workshops and conferences
