Training and support platform

The Karma@PA project (Knowledge, Accompaniment, Research, Monitoring and Assistance for Public Administrations) is a part of a wide-ranging, well-constructed Pilot Action financed together with the Ministry of the University and Research included in Misura III.3 of the National Operative Program 2000-2006 "Scientific Research, Technological Development, High Level Training". This activity is focused on the professional training and updating of employed personnel from various types of Administrations and Public Bodies operating in the Southern Italian regions as stated in ex Objective 1 (Campania, Puglia, Basilicata, Calabria, Sicilia and Sardegna).

These classes correspond to four Spheres of Intervention:

  • A - Regions, Provinces, Local Bodies
  • B - Universities, Research Bodies and Centres
  • C - A.F.A.M. Institutes
  • D - Chambers of Commerce

Apart from these Spheres, MUIR further offers a fifth Sphere of Intervention (E), focused on ensuring maximum integration and enhancement of the activities and the wealth of knowledge they have produced, thus promoting the sharing and transport availability of the results with particular emphasis on monitoring quality and evaluating training activities. MUIR has entrusted the implementation of the E Sphere to a Group in which interact acts as the Technologic partner and which includes the CENSIS Foundation, the Consortium for the Area for Scientific Research and Technology of Trieste and the London School of Economics and Political Science.

The goal of interact is to create a technological platform able to support those activities required to accumulate knowledge pertinent to training activities as envisaged in the Spheres A, B, C, and D, monitoring their ongoing progress.

interact has developed a technological platform able to support training project organisation comprising tools for:

  • sharing training material
  • creating common archives for documents
  • monitoring training activities
  • managing the project calendar
  • communicating asynchronously and synchronously with project members
  • publishing textual or multimedia documents on internet

interact has further created a specific community tool for trainers offering suggestions for using new methods on how to use digital communication tools and data as well as exchanging information among users, attempting to free communication as far as possible from technological restraints. The systems has mainly been designed to create and manage virtual communities focused on developing the capabilities of its members.
