Very successful 3rd Annual Review Meeting

Last week, the project team, the expert reviewers and the project officer were in Innsbruck to assess the outcome of the third year of MATURE and to give guidance on the fourth and final year of MATURE. We had long and very interesting and constructive discussions, and we are happy that the review panel thinks that we have continued to make excellent progress, particularly by a sustained and successful agile approach to project management (which is not seen frequently in EU projects).

MATURE @ Professional Knowledge Management Conference


Beginning of this week, the biennial knowledge management conference WM 2011 took place in Innsbruck, Austria, organized by Ronald Maier and his team. It provided a great opportunity to discuss about MATURE concepts and solutions with experts in the field and practitioners from industry, both large companies and SMEs. Among them were also several associate partners of MATURE's network. MATURE's stand provided a forum for this, and the whole MATURE team among the participants of the conference took a chance for informing and discussing during the coffee and lunch breaks. 

Two new MATURE posters available on Knowledge Maturing models and tool landscape

For the upcoming conference in Innsbruck on Professional Knowledge Management, we have prepared two new posters that explain the knowledge maturing model and the tool landscape.

MATURE @ Professional Training Facts 2010: Learning, Competence, Performance

MATURE has presented the project results at the exhibition area of this year's Professional Training Facts 2010 and could establish contacts to various participants from industry.

Narratives about knowledge maturing published

As part of the interview study, the interviewers have also collected rich, contextualized stories they have been told by their interviewees. They are very good instruments for understanding real-world problems and good practices with respect to knowledge maturing. Now we have published these stories. Some of them are rather short and to the point about a specific insight gained, others are much more elaborate case studies.
