The University of Barcelona is the principal centre of university research at Spain and has become a European benchmark for research activity. The team part of the consortium constitutes a research group integrated at Faculty of Library and Information Science. Its graduates have established direct paths into information management and documentation within organizations large and small, and are now playing significant professional roles in the recordkeeping of a growing multitude of online products and projects, including websites, intranets, digital publications and resource directories.
The participation of UB’s research group in the project’s development is transversal and is involved in all work packages; but it is lead party of work package #1 Global design and coordination of module designs.
The work of UB’s research group is focussed on some of the diverse aspects (conceptual, semantic, epistemological, and practical) related to the subject of Information Science and Knowledge Management; and, in a particular way, on information visualization and architecture as well as collaborative environments development.
