Introduction

The purpose of this project is to create an online collaboration framework that will provide everything currently delivered by the UK JISCmail service and more.

This Conext project will provide a facility for creating group orientated web portals of general and custom applications enabling rich collaboration between members of a group in their common work. The functionality of applications in such portals will extend well beyond email list services by embracing contemporary social networking cloud apps and breaking new ground in providing shared secure access to a wide range of resources.

The project will build on and work closely with the SURFnet SURFconext initiative, with joint aspirations of establishing a fully internationalised online collaboration system for connecting workers on a global basis across all relevant sectors, both academic and commercial/industrial.
