NELL to join European Research Network of Best Practice
October 5, 2009
Stephan and I are delighted to have been accepted to participate in a new European Funded Network of research and best practice; the COST Initiative.
The aim of the COST Initiative is to reduce the fragmentation in European research investments and opening the European Research Area to cooperation worldwide.
Researchers from NELL will be joining the IC0904 Network called ‘Towards the Integration of Transectorial IT Design and Evaluation’. The Priniciple aim of this Action is to harmonise research and practice on design and evaluation methodologies for computing artefacts, across sectors and disciplines.
This Network currently has members from 20 other European countries and is growing.
We see participation in COST Network as exiting opportunity to share research and learn more about what other members in the network are currently investigating in the area of design and evaluation metrics of usability and user experience, particularly in e-learning applications.
We would also look at participation in the Network as opportunity to encourage mobility and exchange of research students, faculty and staff between different research centres and to collaborate on scientific research and publications.
The first meeting of the Management committee of this Network will meet in Nov 09, so watch this space…
