SOURCE Consortium
Abstract: 

This is the first of three versions of the guidebook to be issued within the SOURCE Network of Excellence.

After a general overview of knowledge sharing where the importance of tacit knowledge is highlighted the very challenging conditions for knowledge sharing in societal security are explored. Thereafter follows an exploration of knowledge sharing methods. At the present stage of the action it is mainly based on literature and pre-SOURCE experience.

The World Cafe

Abstract: 

Using seven design principles and a simple method, the World Café is a powerful social technology for engaging people in conversations that matter, offering an effective antidote to the fast-paced

fragmentation and lack of connection in today’s world. Based on the understanding that conversation is the core process that drives personal, business, and organizational life, the World Café is more than a method, a process, or technique – it’s a way of thinking and being together sourced in a philosophy of conversational leadership.

Report on the outcomes of the: "Public consultation on transnational research cooperation and knowledge transfer between public research organisations and industry"

Document type:

EUROPEAN COMMISSION RESEARCH DIRECTORATE-GENERAL Directorate M - Investment in Research and links with other policies Political aspects, private investment, relations with EIB
Abstract: 

This document summarises the outcomes of the online public consultation conducted by the RESEARCH DG from 12 May to 31 July 2006 during which 199 responses were received.

The consultation results clearly show that the exploitation of publicly funded research results is deemed to be an important driver for EU competitiveness. It also highlighted a number of key issues that should be addressed if closer PRO-industry links are to be achieved.

COMMUNICATION FROM THE COMMISSION EUR 22836 EN COM(2007)182
Abstract: 

A strong scientific knowledge base is one of Europe’s traditional key assets and has allowed us to become world class in several research fields.

In spite of these merits, the global position of European
research is currently being challenged by a rapidly changing research landscape. Simultaneously, European research is faced with the implications of globalisation of markets and industries, digitalisation
and new technologies, as well as a need to address societal issues such as an ageing population or climate change.
In its broad-based innovation strategy for the EU, the importance of improving knowledge transfer between public research institutions and third parties, including industry and civil society organisations was identified by the Commission as one of ten key areas for action. This Communication responds to this need and it presents a number of orientations for Member States. It sets out ideas on how Member
States and the Community can act together, in a mutually reinforcing way, to overcome some of the existing obstacles, in particular in terms of promoting the trans-national dimension of knowledge transfer.
It is accompanied by a Commission Staff Working Document on “voluntary guidelines for universities and other research institutions to improve their links with industry across Europe” which are based on
good practices identified by a number of national public authorities and the work of various European stakeholder associations.

D2.4 Overview and Analysis of Modes of Exchange between relevant Sectors

Document type: 
Report
Publisher / Publication: 
SOURCE Publication
Abstract: 

This report pursued the objective to describe the modes of interactions of the different sectors concerned with societal security and to detect the obstacles which could hinder a successful interac

tion and cooperation of all sectors to enhance societal security in Europe. For these analyses three types of data were used: the results of the sector survey meeting already published in D2.3, the results of an online questionnaire and six different studies containing desktop research about the different security claims defined in D2.3.

A Handbook on Knowledge Sharing: Strategies and Recommendations for Researchers, Policymakers, and Service Providers

Document type: 
Book
Publisher / Publication: 
Community-University Partnership for the Study of Children, Youth, and Families Edmonton, Canada
Abstract: 

This handbook was created by the Community-University Partnership for the Study of Children, Youth, and Families (CUP) as a resource for those interested in knowledge sharing among researchers, pol

icymakers, service providers, and the public.
This handbook was formulated using existing knowledge-sharing
resources, which were collected, reviewed, and summarized. In addition, CUP's experiences working with researchers, policymakers, and service providers have informed the development of this handbook.
The target audience for this handbook includes those struggling with
knowledge sharing among researchers, policymakers, and service providers in the health and social science fields. This book represents an attempt to bring together the diversity of information that was scattered across books, journals, and organizations into a logical, accessible resource, which will hopefully be a useful tool to those engaged in knowledge sharing.
As the art and science of knowledge sharing progress, revisions to this manual will be made. CUP invites any ideas for future editions for this ongoing work-in-progress.

Swarm Robotics

Abstract: 

1 page fact sheet on the technology trends of Swarm Robotics

Similar to swarms of certain animals, which exhibit a collective behaviour when aggregated together, groups of robots can interact by following simple rules implemented in each individual system instead of carrying out instructions of a central planning unit. Such robot swarms are not necessarily dependent on communication between the swarm members and do not need any command structure, in contrast to cooperative multi-robot systems. However, in common language often the term “swarm” is used with respect to robotics neglecting this differentiation, but referring to arbitrary groups of robots, irrespective of the type of their interaction.

funded by the European Commission’s seventh framework programme for research
Abstract: 

The COuRAGE (Cybercrime and cyberterrOrism (E)UropeanResearch AGEnda ) project is funded by the European Commission’s seventh framework programme for research.

COuRAGE will produce a research agenda for Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism (CC/CT) using the expertise of the consortium partners, advisory board members and recruited expert stakeholders. The research agenda will identify the major challenges, reveal research gaps for Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism. And recommend practical research approaches to address these gaps through strategies that are aligned to real-world needs. These strategies will be supported by test and evaluation schemes. The purpose of COuRAGE is to significantly improve the security of citizens and critical infrastructures and support crime investigators.
