The Technical and Scientific Library of the Italian Space Agency is now online, providing access to various information resources, services and documenting projects advancement status (Italian Only).
The Distretto Virtuale interactive portal for space business and scientific community
The “Distretto Virtuale” is an innovative information resource offering a web interface to all of the sector’s stakeholders (public enttities, entreprises and their associations, local and regional authorities, universities, etc.) enabling them to interact with their proposals and contributions. This, above all, allows the mapping of specialisations and vocations expressed by the italian territory as well as their promotion and exploitation in a synergical way, also by means of integrated financing operations.
The portal consists of 3 tools. The main tool is the Db of space Business and Scientific community. The other tools are a Content manager platform (Alfresco) and a Threaded email communicator (Mailman), to facilitate targeted messaging within the community.
