Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution



Social networks have emerged as facilitators for knowledge sharing and as direct collaborators for the consolidation of information and knowledge sharing processes. This paper aims to identify, and describe the use of social networks and other digital platforms in the NEWFOOD knowledge transfer initiative (NORTE-01-0246-FEDER-000043) to actively disseminate knowledge, skills and resources to stakeholders from the relevant economic sectors, and the impact achieved. Following an exploratory case study, methodological procedures included a theoretical review on social networks and knowledge dissemination; the design of a digital communication plan, structure, and contents; and an assessment of its impact. Several digital contents were developed and distributed to bring researchers to promote innovations in traditional food products and to raise sector stakeholder’s awareness about potential of exploitation. Disseminated information and knowledge contributed to promote technological innovation through the generation of new ideas for products and services in this sector, and the alignment between stakeholders.
