The ICT-AGRI Meta Knowledge Base (MKB) website is being migrated to a new version based on DrupalTM. All user accounts as well as profiles of people and organisations are transferred from the old to the new site. Users who had registered at the old MKB site can activate their account at the new site by requesting a new password to be sent to their email address. New users are very welcome to create a new account.
Research postings and iProjects will be moved to the new website a soon as time allows.
A Matchmaking and Consortium Building tool is available in the ICT-AGRI Meta Knowledge Base as
ICT-AGRI iPROJECTS. You can use this tool to suggest a project and invite partners, or you can join a project suggested by someone else. The proposal submission system for the upcoming ICT-AGRI Call will be an extension of iProjects, letting proposers go directly from initial consortium building to proposal development.
