ECOWEB: from research to realisation
The transformation of scientific research into self-sustaining market products is not only a key factor to an innovative society, but also one of the great challenges in ecological markets. Semantic barriers such as language and accessibility of information hinder an effective uptake across the EU and slow down the diffusion of research results into reliable market products and services.
To bridge this gap; to help Economy and Research get together – ECOWEB was developed.
ECOWEB is a new solution that brings research to realization. It brings together research results from over a thousand EU-funded projects from all sectors of Eco-Innovation, be it societal behavior or material sciences, and presents them all in an easy accessible, clearly structured platform, offering a quicker and easier access to innovation than ever before.
A semantic search interface, based on a detailed ontology and multiple search-paths (Keyword, Library, Guided Search), allow long-year-experts to quickly find the detail they need, and equally offers people who are new to eco-innovation to easily get an overview of the recent scientific developments
While the main target group are SMEs from all over Europe, researchers and multipliers can also benefit from the platform. Every project is presented with detailed contact information of the consortium partners and their contact persons, enabling broad networking and supporting the exchange of ideas between experts. Multipliers such as cluster societies, lobbies and umbrella organizations will be invited to become part of the ECOWEB family and also presenting their logo and projects on the website.
