Major updates to the OpenRiskNet website

The OpenRiskNet website was first released in June 2017, to enable presentation of project work to its stakeholders (end-users and developers), the scientific community and to the general public. The website contains information on project objectives and partners, detailed information on the Associate Partner Programme and a list of dissemination activities (events, publications and other resources). On the technical development side, the website provides information on case studies and associated use cases.

On 19 October 2018, a new version of the website was released including major changes on its structure and the information provided. The new features of the websites (e.g. catalogue of services, resources & training, list of events, etc.) released recently aim to support even more all project stakeholders in browsing and accessing the information on the available services and resources addressed to users.
