  3. 3. Identified needs• learn about knowledge networks• increase knowledge sharing capacity• improve collaboration and• build on existing research, avoid replication• collective ownership• linking different knowledge systems• decision making knowledge• downscaled climate data
  4. 4. Why weADAPT?• Going beyond knowledge sharing• Integrating knowledge in intelligent ways [1]• Ensuring it is from a variety of credible sources• Linking communities of practise with scientific research (e.g. video story) [1] Using semantic technology to recognise relationships between content

  14. 14. Questions we are tryingto explore• In what ways can we represent both high quality scientific and local knowledge?• How do we build trust and break down barriers in sharing?• How do we encourage this knowledge to be used? Register at! – Next launch – April 8, 2011
