The ECARE Digital Platform

The ECARE Digital Platform is being developed to support the main objectives and actions of ECARE, ensuring its impact extends well beyond the project's lifespan. This innovative platform comprises three key components designed to streamline information gathering, enhance collaboration, and provide valuable resources:

  1. Information Collection and Mapping Tools: This feature offers a dynamic way to gather data and update information on regional and national programmes, technologies, and capabilities. It includes a comprehensive database of funding opportunities across European, national, and regional levels. Users can easily navigate this database using advanced search and filter options, such as keyword search, taxonomy terms, geographical regions, deadlines, and more. Additionally, the platform hosts a database of current projects, making it simple for users to find relevant projects through various filters.
  2. Collaboration Space: Designed to foster synergies, this space offers tools like discussion forums and other functionalities. Users can engage in different forms of collaboration, including private or public workgroups, discussion forums with file sharing capabilities, polls, and a partner search/match feature based on user profiles. Private messaging options further facilitate direct communication among users.
  3. Information Database: Aimed at directing regional stakeholders to pertinent information sources, this database is a work in progress. The project consortium is dedicated to curating a practical set of resources to promote synergy implementation effectively. Anticipated resources include a practical handbook on synergies, a repository of completed projects, and supportive materials such as links and guides.

Each component of the ECARE Digital Platform is designed to make information more accessible, encourage collaboration among stakeholders, and provide essential resources to support the ECARE initiative's goals and longevity.
