WiKyPlanet launched !
‘WiKyPlanet’ is the wiki-platform that has been developed for KYOTO.The information on the wiki is accessible for all (potential) users (professionals from the environmental domain). For the first phase a number of professionals are invited to start using the platform by adding information and start discussions or a forum with associates. They will receive a “login”, that enables them to use the wiki tools and to add and delete information. In the second phase Wikyplanet will be multilingual and used by more and more professionals. Eventually, Wikyplanet will become the basis for integrating and launching the KYOTO system in a wider user community when it becomes available, thereby achieving early dissemination and validation.
