Is your FET research taking EFFECT?

High risk, long term, multidisciplinary and collaborative frontier research, laying the foundations for radically new, next generation technologies – this is the essence of the Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) programme. But how do you communicate efficiently on such high level science projects without losing your audience along the way of science? How do you achieve the outreach you have always dreamt of?

The EFFECT project, in wich ZABALA participates, will support all FET projects in their communication activities to increase their influence and impact among  society, policy makers and stakeholders. The project is there to help enhance the visibility and the impact of FET research by assisting FET projects in developing an adequate communication and engagement plan that will support their sustainability. 

EFFECT will organise dedicated compelling webinars and workshops, info days and brokerage events both locally and at EU level.  

Acting as a communications hub across various media such as TV and the Internet , EFFECT will connect science, industry and society with easy-to-access tools and techniques.

In addition, it will support FET research outcomes by packaging key results in novel but tested ways, independently reviewing FET content to boost outreach potential, turning up the volume for interested stakeholders, opinion leaders, general public and the wider business community, and stimulating debate through online media and events.

EFFECT is here to help FET projects boost their effect! Contact us at to benefit from our experience and support and follow us on @FETFX_EU!
