The Collaborative Technology Platform includes a suite of technology and communications tools along with training and support for collaborative leaders and stakeholders. Through the Collaborative Technology Tool Shed, the platform will provide a unique, accessible, and efficient set of RESOLVE tested IT tools, systems, and resources designed to support multi-sector initiatives and other collaborations. With the Collaborative Technology Platform, RESOLVE has identified opportunities to lead technology adoption in the field, helping current partners enhance capacity for collaboration. At a time when financial resources are scarce, and good ideas to solve problems are dispersed, collaborative technologies can expand the problem solving potential and allow for inclusion of more diverse stakeholders.
The Collaborative Technology Platform:
- Provides technologies and guidance for engaging dispersed groups
- Enables initiatives to more efficiently collect, analyze, and disseminate information
- Supports broader and more engaging collaborative science
- Provides technologies to efficiently develop shared understandings and outcomes
- Enhances collaboration across distance and time
- Efficiently combines input from more participants and from those who don’t normally participate
