  • Capture and build interest in IIOE-2 amongst the general public through a public event and promotional materials campaign.
  • Showcase and promote the relevancies of the IIOE-2 research being undertaken and its impacts and benefits across the scientific, cultural, social and economic spheres and directly link IIOE-2 research activities to related communication initiatives
  • Maintain a regular and current dissemination mode of cross-cutting information and general news and specific announcements for IIOE-2.
