Moving Towards Adaptive Governance in Complexity: Informing Nexus Security

Deliverables

Interactive Project Website

Interactive project website including: (i) a Discussion Forum open to the general public; (ii) a helpdesk section to handle initial enquiries and provide advice; (iii) reports of the project results from WPs 3, 4, 5, 6; (iv) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) introductory materials section; (v) Videos and broadcast media, to be developed in the form of e-learning material on nexus aspects along the themes of the mixed groups, for online courses and webinars; (vi) teaching material to be used for a course at academic level. The website will be gradually developed and expanded during the course of the project to form the Nexus Knowledge Hub.
