  20. 20. Some ideas to take away• Web 2.0, Social Networking, Communicating Research – is just an attitude• There is a paramount task yet in involving and motivating (good) researchers, research groups and academic units in communicating (well!) Research and Science.• Dissemination of Research and Public Outreach is hindered by current issues.• There is a high pressure (Publish of Perish, Transfer or Die, etc.) that does not free time enough to get involved in Public Outreach and Dissemination activities• A proper system of Rewards could be established to catalyze and promote Science and Research communication.• Thank you very much for your attention!
