Communicating Transparency (Public Relations)

Schanz, Sievers, and Sureth-Sloane aim at facilitating bi-directional multichannel exchanges between the TRR 266 and its target audience groups, i.e., regulators, politicians, firms and their stakeholders, the scientific community, and the general public. The project will incorporate feed-back from these exchanges into TRR 266’s research program and, supported by the Open Science Data Center, evaluate the dissemination of TRR 266 based on a comprehensive quality assurance concept. To reach these objectives, they will use a variety of communication channels and events.
