Successful BIGCCS webinars

This spring, BIGCCS introduced a webinar series with the aim of disseminating results from the centre activities to its partners. All BIGCCS research task – 14 in total – selected one topic, and made a webinar, which is open for the partners, only. The experiences so far has been very positive.

Simply put, a webinar is a seminar, which takes place on the web, online. A speaker gives a presentation to an audience, which see and hear «live» both the presentation and the speaker. Through the webinar software, the participants can comment and raise questions both orally and in writing. Like a moderator in a meeting room, an organizer orchestrates who are allowed to speak. The webinars are recorded, so «no-shows» can download and see the presentation from the BIGCCS eRoom at any time after the webinar.

To date, 11 webinars have been held. The number of registrants has varied from 10 to over 40. Each webinars typically has had 50% or more attendees from BIGCCS industry partners. So far, more than 230 individuals have registered for the webinars.

Participants, and in particular industry partners, have expressed great satisfaction with the webinar way of disseminating results. Researchers have been complemented for having prepared good presentations, and the webinar itself is a very cost-effective way of holding meetings. As one of the attendees expressed it: – You see and hear the presentation, you can ask questions and participate in the discussion, and you don’t have to travel. What more can you ask?
