Links: Privacy and EU projects

Two totally unrelated items, the first highlighting why there are still many issues to resolve before the Web2.0 totally online world is a good idea for critical processes for businesses or e-participation services:

And this paper provides some background reading for planning for a piece of social network analysis work that is coming up for me:

  • This paper conceptualises networks of excellence (NoEs), a new funding instrument in the EU’s Sixth Framework Programme for research, to propose how to monitor and assess the achievement of their objectives. It analyses the dynamics of NoEs and potential changes taking place in an NoE during its lifetime (funding period of five to seven years). It discusses critically some of the assumptions underlying the creation of NoEs by devoting special attention to the concept of integration and its relationship to excellence. The paper further draws attention to different dimensions of integration and how these could be measured.
