Consortium as a whole

The approach of the QLectives project is unique in that it brings together a highly inter-disciplinary team applied to specific real world problems. We aim to apply a scientific approach to our designs by formulating theories, applying them to real systems and then performing detailed measurements of system and user behaviour to validate or modify our theories if necessary. Our two applications will be based on two existing user communities comprising several thousand people - so-called "Living Labs". For QMedia we will work with the Tribler media sharing community. For QScience we will work with the EconoPhysics Forum community.

QLectives is a 7 million Euro four years project, starting in March 2009, funded by the EU under the FP7 FET programme.
