RENDER

RENDER - Reflecting Knowledge Diversity.

RENDER will help to realize a world where information is acquired and shared in a fundamentally different manner than the consensual approach promoted by movements such as Web 2.0, and where communication and collaboration across the borders of social, cultural or professional communities are truly enabled via advanced Web technology, supporting one of the credos of European society: “United in diversity”.

RENDER is funded as an Information and Communication Technologies Project under European Commission 7th FP. It started on 1st October 2010 and will run till September 2013. RENDER is coordinated by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany.
