Dissemination ensures that the results of the research developed in the ITN are disseminated and exploited through communication and transfer into other research setting. Scientific publications and conference presentations are major means of foreground dissemination. 

The project's dissemination activities will pay reference to the funding stream and display the following:

'The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme ([FP7/2007-2013] [FP7/2007-2011]) under grant agreement 316657 (SpinIcur)’
