April 2012 – September 2012

POLY5 project is currently focusing on the definition of a so-called cognitive framework which aims to describe not only the actual situation of the cooperation area, in terms of its geographical, social and economic aspects (knowledge base), but also to draw possible futures for areas affected by the presence of major transport infrastructure (strategies, scenarios and visions)

Knowledge base, scenarios, visions and strategies are fundamental cognitive resources that can help to deal with these issues and to decide if, why, where and, partially, how to implement major transport infrastructures in the territory.

The framework is supported by TEKNOSS (Territorial Knowledge Sharing System), a WEB platform, built on a technology facilitating the exchange of knowledge available in a specific domain. In our case the identified domain is “Corridor 5” and the knowledge gathered so far refers to the processes that goes from the launching phase to the implementation of the project.

The knowledge base is now complete, providing a picture of the areas crossed by Corridor 5 and its ramifications, describing its geographical, social, economic and environmental aspects, together with a detailed study on the infrastructural system in terms of interaction between demand and supply of transport needs. The supporting web platform named TEKNOSS transforms this knowledge (made of web pages held together by an underlying model  called ontology)  in “machine understandable” commands so as to assist the user to browse large amounts of data (text, statistics, images, maps) in search for knowledge (i.e. answers to specific questions). Communicate project activities is an important task: the Province of Gorizia has organized a workshop in April to present project aims and interactions between major infrastructures and local land use. University of Udine organized a lecture-meeting in May which has been attended by 80 students and stakeholders coming from Italy and Austria.
