KNOWMAK

Knowledge in the making in the European society

KNOWMAK helps you explore the European knowledge output!

The KNOWMAK project aims at developing a web-based tool that provides interactive visualisations and state-of-the-art indicators on knowledge co-creation in the European Research Area (ERA). The tool itself is created by following a co-creation approach - it is understood as the engagement with and involvement of the target user groups from the start, co-designing and co-developing a tool that is tailored to their data and information needs.

KNOWMAK is structured around three integrative elements:

  • Geographical spaces, with a focus on multiple level metropolitan, regional, national and European spaces and their interconnectedness.
  • 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.

The tool combines traditional research output data (projects, publications, patent applications) with information on social innovation projects and user attention to knowledge production. ZSI is reponsible for

  • the engagement of lead users from key stakeholder groups such as policy-makers, research funders, or representatives of business, civil society, or research or innovation manageres;
  • the increasing involvement of a wider circle of users;
  • the develpment of the KNOWMAK website; and
  • the development of the online tool that allows to visually explore the European knowledge output.
