Habitats Reference Laboratory

HABITATS extends  user-centric, co-design approaches into the arena of standards design and adoption processes, considering standards initiatives such as INSPIRE, OGC, UNSDI to be significant social, economic and institutional innovations. The elements of approach are maintained, applying the model at all levels from the global  scale of the to the local and regional policies that frame many HABITATS validation pilots. Community building activities follow a Web 2.0 approach to capture the knowledge in active user communities with a strong interest in contributing to the standards development process. By inviting a broad multi-sectoral and inter-disciplinary range of concerned stakeholders to participate in the HABITATS network, a viral motivation spiral is set off. A peer-to-peer approach to opening up information sources and providing access to content ensure a rapid extension of the critical mass of environmental data established by project partners.

Reference laboratory allows to deploy current state of the art of technological solution, which will be tested and adopted by Habitats partners and users partners. It allows to test current existing technology and allow to generate further research tasks driven by users.

Reference laboratory will also collected information conning from other projects, which will be important input for Habitats analysis and Habitats public discussion. Method of social assessment will be important part of reference laboratory.
