The KmP (Knowledge Management Platform) projects: The KmP projects are a set of pluridisciplinary and user participatory projects aiming at designing systems for managing collective and individual competencies, which resulted in a prototype platform based on Corese and Sewese.
The KmP-2 project (Managing collective competencies). If this one-year project, aimed at pre-industrializing the KmP prototype platform, ended last year for the former Acacia team (now the Edelweiss team), it was still going on for the Telecom Valley Association, one of the partners with whom we elaborated the KmP prototype platform. This year, Telecom Valley officially launched the new KmP platform ( http://kmp.telecom-valley.fr/ ). This year too, a KmP co-property agreement was signed by INRIA, CNRS and TelecomValley to allow the Telecom Valley association to continue the work done and to build on this work.
The KM2 project (Managing individual and collective competencies). This two-year project funded by NXP (formely Philips Semiconductors) aimed at designing and validating a prototype supporting the strategic management of individual and collective competencies within a firm, namely NXP. 2007 was the second year of the project. During this year, Edelweiss acted as a consultant, and collaborated with the NXP engineer in charge of making the KM2 prototype operational in the firm.
