Successful completion of the first phase
The HOPE Project team worked hard on every single task, and finally, we finishe our first Intellectual Output - Research Knowledge Hub (RKH).
This output (IO1) will build and establish a "research-knowledge hub" (RKH) in the form of an electronic library. The RKH will include extensive items of applied research on timber building design principles, circular economy, sustainable development, and material availability in several European areas.
The RKH will be an innovative tool for bibliographic search, an electronic library in all of the partners' languages, into which the project partners will upload complete construction methods (assembly and disassembly), studies, reports, practical guides, and case studies, all of which are expected to aid in finding all of the necessary resources under one umbrella.
The RKH's goal is to be a beneficial instrument in the hands of both researchers and professionals who are involved in the entire process of delivering a modular unit to individuals in need (from design to construction). Engineers (architects, structural engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers, etc.) and technicians/builders/foremen are the primary users of this product (the ones who will actually construct every modular project). The RKH will be a Web application that will be available to all interested parties for free and will allow people to search for all linked materials using a variety of parameters such as year of publication of the source, source language, field of interest, kind of source, author, and so on.
The various sources' search parameters can be used to get the best results for locating the most recent trends and case studies for modular settlement units. Each report/source that is posted to the RKH will include a short synopsis as well as keywords to help with comprehension and utilization.
