PLOCAN has completed the implementation of the Communication and Dissemination activities in the Marine-Maritime Sector (CODIMAR) Project, which sought to generate new communication and scientific dissemination mechanisms, as well as to take advantage and reinforce the projects in execution and the events held in PLOCAN with specific actions.
The CODIMAR Project has achieved its objectives, impacting on society and schools, with the participation of more than 500 students and 37 schools in the 3D printing workshops, the production of 19 videos made by schools within the video contest on the educational initiative EDUROVs and the development of two permanent interactive exhibitions on marine-maritime activities based on the facilities and services offered by PLOCAN.
The CODIMAR project has been executed with the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECyT), the Cabildo (Island Government) of Gran Canaria and the La Caixa Foundation.
The project has been executed during a period of 18 months, from January 2018 to June 2019. CODIMAR has achieved all the objectives initially set:
- To bring to society the uniqueness of the work carried out by PLOCAN and the facilities and services that derive from it.
- To increase the dissemination of the results of scientific-technical research.
- To promote the design and development of technological tools taking into account existing needs in marine uses.
- To increase the impact on social media by additional resources that improve the communication and scientific dissemination.
