  9. 9. Content Introduction Checklist I Channels: how and where to get in contact with industry? II Content: which message works for industry? III Tools: which instrument works? IV Monitoring: feedback from industry Annex I: country examples Annex II: examples of PR material
  10. 10. Checklist Checklist provides questions to determine best approach for a particular mobility centre to contact industry. Stimulate reflection Situation in each country is different (research landscape, number and size of industry, legal situation, type of service centre etc) Each service centre / country should determine country specific ‘industry approach’
  11. 11. Recommendation: Channels How & where to get in touch with industry…. A. Representation of Industry in national Steering Group –choose good match/tangible benefits/active contributors B. Collaboration with industry representative organisations – time consuming but well worth it! Increase visibilty C. Other channels: ‘hijacking’ of meetings, attendance at recruitment fairs, funding events, collab with gov. Agencies • EURAXESS will not alone attract industry but it forms a natural part of the wider agenda in meetings ( R&D sessions)
  12. 12. Recommendation: Channels Approaches in promoting EURAXESS to industry very different to academia. Keep it relevant & concise!! A. Free Publication of job opportunities – need to invest time in promotion, training & follow up B. Practical problem solving assistance for all sizes – good to back up with testimonials, keep records C. Funding Opportunities information -hiring (foreign) researchers and securing funding for projects is often closely related. Link with FP/Marie Curie NCP’s and other funding programmes.
  13. 13. Recommendation: Tools Communication Tools influences outcome of activities A. E-mailing and newsletters geared at industry - use existing databases in organisation. *Target relevant contact to ensure dissemination *Beware of cost efficiency vs risk of information overload B. Specific information material for industry *focus on language/tailor made for industry (vs academia, public orgs) *highlight selling propositions for industry *dedicate special section on EURAXESS portal(s) for industry?
  14. 14. Recommendation: Tools contd.. C. Advertising/ announcements using external press *sending EURAXESS message through ‘own’ press might be more trustworthy than direct from EURAXESS centre D. Conferences, training sessions and workshops * Combine PR for EURAXESS with detailed training or information
