The Pre-Project Phase
The development of a research goal from the first idea into a complete grant proposal can take a long time. At the beginning, ideas have to mature, an interdisciplinary core group of researchers needs to come together and develop it further and the appropriate funding agency needs to be identified.
All Project Phases
A website nowadays can be much more than a collection of static pages and a couple of links. Research project consortia can use a modern, interactive website as tool for dissemination, communication, networking, project and knowledge management and for many other applications.
Project Execution and Post-Project Phase
Knowledge has become more and more important in our information society. Research consortia especially need to make the most of their knowledge as they often come together for a limited period in time and the natural turnover of co-workers can be immense.
