Computer Supported Collaborative Work through Dynamic Social Networking (CLICK)
The CLICK project was cooperation between Vinnvård and the Jönköping Academy for Improvement of Health and Welfare. The overall aim of the project is to make collaboration between researchers more effective. The technical objective of this project is to create an architecture of an online service to support collaboration of healthcare researchers. The service facilitates the task of seeking collaborators for joint work on producing scientific artefacts. The search of potential collaborators is based on matching the researcher's profile against others’ profiles. Profiles are ontology-based and composed of all different scientific-related activities and products of a person. The distinguishing features of the approach are (a) automatic construction of researchers’ competence profiles based on semantic integration of data sources and (b) providing automatic suggestion for collaboration based on matching of competence profiles.
