The associate network of the consortium includes 3 academic institutions, (2 in healthcare and 1 technical). It also includes 2 industry associates, (1 content creator and 1 infrastructure provider). An obvious role of this network is that of a secondary dissemination cluster proliferating the project’s results in their own dissemination network.
The associate network of ENTICE will be engaged in all steps of the co-creative process as consulting observers. They will be invited at key meetings of the consortium at all phases of the project and they are expected to offer a view beyond that of the consortium. The associate network will have representatives in qualitative research endeavors (interviews, focus groups) in order to provide a “project free” view of the landscape on which the co-creative process is being implemented.
Associate network will receive the early release (as soon as WP3 delivers them) of the educational episodes to them. Note must be taken, that the associate network has been formed by companies and HEIs who have already declared their interest towards the project. In that context, volunteered insights will be forthcoming and shall be included as qualitative indicators of the project’s outcomes. Of special interest to the consortium are the insights of an infrastructure provider associate on integration approaches for digital resources to large-scale infrastructures for seamless streamlined content deployment.
