Information on actors is twofold: it provides the web navigator with the actor’s basic coordinates ‘contacts’ but, mainly, with a detailed view of each actor’s specific expertise. Expertise is grasped through present and past realizations that, in accordance with specificities of each umbrella, are grouped under the label ‘projects/clients/contracts’. The item projects/clients/contracts, refer in its turn, to different fields of application, labeled under the category ‘theme’.
Visitors are encouraged to conduct their navigation within the base, by sorting actors or projects with the main filters ‘by umbrella’ and ‘by theme’ and, in a second step, with the help of filters such as: country or timing of implementation.
