Tailored communication interventions will promote and disseminate the project activities and results to all the actors concerned. Activities will be organised to span the duration of the project, ensuring to the project high profile and appropriate visibility both at national and international level. Dissemination will follow three modalities depending on the final recipient: researchers, beekeepers, and consumers.

All project partners will collaborate to communication activities, that will benefit of the involvement of Apimondia and FAO TECA.

In this section, all communication materials with both scientific and educational purpose will be published.
