The Responsible-Industry project distinguishes between communication, dissemination and exploitation.
Communication is the two-way exchange of information that is characterised by mutual respect and a willingness to take one another serious. Communication is at the heart of the concept of responsiveness, which Schomberg (2011) defines as the core of RRI. The Responsible-Industry project demonstrates its willingness to communicate through its extensive stakeholder dialogue and networking activities.
Dissemination in the context of the present project is the provision of relevant information to potential recipients. It includes the production of information material in digital and other form and the development of relevant communication channels.
Exploitation, finally, is the process of rendering disseminated information practical and useful by ensuring its uptake by relevant recipients and stakeholders.
