Service Communautaire d'Information sur la Recherche et le Développement - CORDIS

Interactive web communication platform

The objective of the established website is to disseminate information about the project to non-project members. The internal web-area contains a password secured platform for project members and stakeholders directly involved in the project to store and exchange information easily accessible. A webforum is also available as one typical ICT tool to generate a dialogue among project members and the public. Unfortunately, this offer is hardly used.

In contrary to the forum the website itself and the internal platform can be considered a success. The website received about 1500 hits in 6 months and the platform is frequently used for up- and downloading of documents. The website raised the attraction of scientists and practitioners involved in issues of integrated water management. The possibility of contacting different scientific institutions in Europe dealing with the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive is used.
