TEAMWORK


Technology Exploitation and Adaptable Methodologies offering new organisational models and practices for e-Working Teams
Project Summary
TEAMwork sets out to provide a novel, 'complete' solution (integrating Technology, Methodology and Skills) for e-working teams operating in a distributed, multi-cultural environment. The TEAMwork solution will be trialed in three diverse distributed end-user domains:- Software Engineering SME's, Public Service Organisations and Research Networks. TEAMwork will offer these organisations the 'complete solution' for managing dispersed 'narrow-competence' teams and for effective decision-making in a virtual, multi-cultural environment. The TEAMwork solution represents a major advance on currently-available solutions because it can be enhanced, adapted and influenced by the end-user (a non-technician) to suit their particular operational requirements. The results of the trials will be disseminated widely to 20,000 IT managers. Exploitation is also foreseen.

ONTO-LOGGING


Corporate Ontology Modelling and Management System
Project Summary
The project objectives are:1. To develop a set of tools to pave the way for next generation distributed Knowledge Management systems, able to support different independent ontologies and knowledge bases and providing the basis for transparent interoperability and knowledge exchange.2. To integrate those tools into a KM platform which will be tested in a pilot site, in order to assess the benefits of deploying the ONTO-LOGGING technologies.3. To provide input for existing standardisation efforts in the area of corporate ontologies, and particularly in the area of ontology interoperability. The ultimate goal of the system is to build an Enterprise Value Planning system which substitutes current focus on Enterprise Resource Planning solutions. The final result of the project will be a product which far exceeds the capabilities and commercial possibilities of existing products worldwide.

These objective are to be achieved along four main lines of action:1) Developing of a distributed ontology formalisation system, built over the existing W3C standards and Semantic Web activity, like RDF, RDF-Schema, or upcoming standards like OIL and DAML.2) Enhancing the customisation possibilities of current KM products, via a meta-repository of corporate knowledge which will allow to reduce start-up costs, and will make it possible for the user to dynamically optimise the corporate ontology as the knowledge of the organisation evolves.3) Developing and incorporating metrics which allow to quantify the relative success and merit of competing ontologies.4) Incorporating recent developments in intelligent agent technology for user modelling and intelligent category extraction.

OPAL


OnLine Partnership lens: a social browser for networked enterprise
Project Summary
OPAL addresses a significant knowledge management problem: human capital in firms who need to find partners online. It presents a specification and development plan for an archive and browser to store and manipulate profiles ofpartners’ competencies, compatibility and trust. Partners are rated as ’experimential goods’. The rankings are stored as visualisations along with records of interaction. The resulting archive is searched by means of a visualquery language, and search results are stored as ’libraries’ of partner profiles that can be matched with a given project. This novel resource extends the concept of human capital beyond competence modelling and includes emotional and moral dimensions. Outcomes are a working prototype for dynamic modelling of online partnerships, a methodology for eliciting attributes to support this, and an evaluation of the prototype’s impact on knowledge management.
Objectives
The global objective of the project is to assess the value of a Human Capital toolkit in the context of inter-organisational and collaborative work.The scientific objectives are: elicit models of competence, compatibility and trust; design and implement a computer-based probe to capture and evaluate these and store them in a partner profile library; evaluate the probe’s effect on the speed and strength of teambuilding. The technological objectives are: - to capture sets of attributes for partner profiles that represent three facets of partnership: competence, compatibility and confidence; - to model these as data objects held in an extensible framework such as XML; - to integrate the three facets into a flexible toolkit for modelling partnership; - to design, implement and evaluate a ’partner retrieval’ system; - to design and evaluate a visual interface for this; - to provide a ranking mechanism for partnership.

ETEMSOLUTION


Electronic Technology Management Solution
Project Summary
Today companies recognise the need for production processes that boost product performance and drive down costs. Experts and resources required to plan and realise this processes are often unavailable. Technology planners and decision-makers are also confronted with a flood of information when investigating innovative technologies. To solve these problems eTEMsolution has been developed. This ICT-tool consists of a workflow, document, user and competence systems, databases, search engines and intelligent agents. The objective of the trial project is to enable a detailed and specified evaluation of eTEMsolution. Within the trial project eTEMsolution will get customised and will be implemented in three technology oriented companies, where it will be used to solve existing problems. The trial must for the user partners demonstrate the advantages of introducing the software and must generate insights and experiences that can be used to overcome the last barriers for its exploitation.

KISEIS


Key Interventions for Sustainable Employment in the Information Society for Disadvantaged Groups
Project Summary
The study will analyse solutions for the socio-economic dimensions of the transition to sustainable employment in the information society for disadvantaged groups. The research will develop a framework of interventions, building on lessons from the EU EMPLOYMENT Initiative projects with sustainable IS employment and mainstreaming outcomes. The research will study indicators of success in interventions in four EU countries. Research will include interviews with former EMPLOYMENT participants currently in sustainable employment, and with employers, and case studies of mainstreaming initiatives. The project will develop guidelines and models of best practice for interventions addressing socio-economic aspects of sustainable IS employment. It will also identify and analyse ways to strengthen future EU policy and IST Programme research on an inclusive information society.

AGENTCITIES.NET


Agentcities NET
Project Summary
Agentcities NET will create an open dynamic service environment based on Agent technology by supporting users wishing to deploy agent platforms and services that connect to an extensible Internet based testbed. The project will also enable technology transfer by bringing together key players from related industries (potential users of the technology) and those developing testbed infrastructure and services - potential technology providers but also early take up users - with the testbed as a focal point for collaborative work. The trial will open to encourage Europe-wide participation and has over 40 pre-registered contributors. Concretely, the trial will involve a set of coordinated "actions", designed to support these activities: information days, a deployment support program, a competition, student exchange support and focused working groups.
