9, Exploitation and Dissemination: This workpackage comprise a task
for establishing of the ARTISTE Interest User Group (AIUG), the task for
general dissemination activities (e.g. press releases, promotion and conference
participation), and the exploitation task to do the groundwork for commercial
exploitation of the results of the project. The tasks are 9.1 Dissemination,
9.2 ARTISTE Interest User Group, and 9.3 Exploitation of results.
