Subject:   C-Web Four Project on Knowledge Management

A quote:


"The C-WEB project aims at designing a generic platform based on open standards and distributed as open source, and the related methodology and know-how, to support community-webs. It also aims at validating both the software platform and the methodology through experiments carried-out with two different user communities. The project is planed on four years from 2000 to 2003. We are currently in the preparation phase."

Another quote:

"One important objective of C-Web is to enable corporations to organise their documents and data repositories in such a way that the addition of a new document to the system will participate in the enrichment of a reusable "unit of knowledge" in the corporate information system, explicitly connected to other units of knowledge. Another objective of C-Web is to support knowledge and documentation sharing in open large-scale communities, avoiding the correlated increase of the noise ratio with the number of accessible resources"
