KNOWMAK – Knowledge in the making in the European society

KNOWMAK project aims at developing a web-based tool, which provides interactive visualisations and state-of-the-art indicators on knowledge co-creation in the European Research Area (ERA). It is structured around three integrative elements:

  • Research topics, by developing ontologies around Societal Grand Challenges and Key Enabling Technologies.
  • Actors, with a focus on the quadruple helix and the involvement of societal actors in knowledge co-creation.
  • Geographical spaces, with a focus on multiple level metropolitan, regional, national and European spaces and their interconnectedness.
