AS Knowledge Atlas
The CARE4TECH Knowledge Atlas is designed to visualize expertise and knowledge in the field of SL Technologies. To ensure a structured view of stored data different entry points called Topic View and Region View were created. The Topic View can be used to browse the different SL Topics to explore linked Experts, Case Studies, Organizations and Project Activities. The Region View provides an overview on Topics, Experts, Organizations, Project Activities from the perspective of a given Country and Region which has to be selected first.
The CARE4TECH Visual Matrix contains the following categories: Countries, Regions, Topics, Experts, Case Studies, Organizations, and Project Activities. To bring the AS Knowledge Atlas to life, all CARE4TECH project partners activated their extensive partner networks to enhance the database with flagship institutions and expertise in the field of SL Technologies. The complete digital knowledge database contains 166 different organizations located in 8 countries. 113 Case Studies were collected from these organizations to show best practice in the field of SL. 23 Project Examples are inserted up to now in order to expose the extensive research field of SL Technologies.
