Community Capability Model Framework White Paper
The Community Capability Model Framework is a tool developed by UKOLN, University of Bath, and Microsoft Research. Its aims are to assist institutions, research funders and researchers in: growing the capability of their communities to perform data-intensive research by profiling the current readiness or capability of the community; indicating priority areas for change and investment; and developing roadmaps for achieving a target state of readiness.
A community consultation process was undertaken by the project to develop the framework, including workshops and mini case studies. The result of that process is now captured in a draft of the framework and you are invited to comment on the white paper through the A.nnotate system. The A.nnotate system supports interactive commenting, and the paper can be navigated through the page index which appears after hovering with the mouse underneath the pdf link at the top left.
Further information about the Community Capability Model Framework is available from the Project Web site.
