IT-based Knowledge Platform:
FOCUS objectives include the development of an IT-based Knowledge Platform, populated with studies done in the project and with tools developed or collected by the project, as well as with scenario information based on FOCUS foresight results. The immediate purpose of the platform is to support for planning of security research that is based on futuristic scenarios. Moreover, possible uses of the platform beyond the immediate purpose of the FOCUS project are being explored.
The main focus of the IT-based Knowledge Platform is to establish a structure where tools and scenario foresight instruments and results can be integrated and made accessible.
The IT-based Knowledge Platform is the central entry point/landing page and knowledge management site for IT-related tools and supporting environments for scenario foresight, following the FOCUS project methodology.
With the exception of some confidential content, the platform is accessible without user/password restrictions. For validation purposes and in compliance with data protection regulations as well as the FOCUS information security strategy, a token-based system is in place for scenario foresight questionnaires implemented on the platform.
