Demonstration Workshop - University of Borås


Demonstration Workshop

[WHO WE ARE] Promoting and Enhancing Reuse of Information throughout the Content Lifecycle taking account of Evolving Semantics – PERICLES – is a large Integrated Project funded by the European Union, comprising of eleven partners from six different countries. The project aims to address the challenge of ensuring that digital content remains accessible in an environment that is subject to continual change.

[WHY A DEMONSTRATION WORKSHOP] In such research projects, the main aim is typically to extend the boundaries of knowledge rather than product development. Regardless, in the four year duration of PERICLES (2013-2017), a number of different open-source tools have been developed in order to meet the challenges that have been investigated and as proofs of concepts.  We would, therefore, like to invite you to a workshop where we will present a selection of the tools developed in the project.

[WHY SHARE THE TOOLS] While these tools have successfully served their purpose within the project, their re-packaging and application to new areas or their commercialisation goes beyond the bounds of the project. We therefore invite you to take up from where the project leaves off and see if any of these tools can be of interest.

[WHAT'S IN IT FOR US] During this last year of the project, we aim to spread information about the knowledge gained and tools developed to facilitate sustainability and further development of the tools beyond the boundaries of the project. Informing you about these tools at the mentioned workshop is a step towards that aim.

[WHAT ARE THE COSTS] Both attendance at the workshop, and the uptake of the tools for use or further development, are free of charge.

[WHY ATTEND] It would be a no-brainer to invest a couple of hours in a workshop that has the potential to hand over the results of four years of research and development within a large project (with a budget of around €10 million). Although the tools we present, in their current state, may not be of exact match for your operation, they all have the potential for further development, repackaging, and application to new areas.
