Presentation Open Access
Four types of geometrical and gaming-like visualizations which were recently developed for a data management workshop within the Horizon 2020 MEET project as well as a summary of the workshop outcomes will be presented.
The “Graphical Project Summary” shows in a simple and clear way the key information of the project structure, such as work package leaders, duration, person months, countries or involved partners. The audience of the workshop was informed about this structure and the main responsibilities in a very short amount of time by these thematic figures
The “Bull-Eye Chart” visualizes the involvement of all partners according to their background in certain work packages and allows the identification of key partners for the communication of data-related topics.
The “Task Bingo” was designed as a tool for group work, which was performed in small teams of each involved project partner institution or company. With the help of this game-like figure all participating persons could be motivated to specify within 15 minutes their general types of data-related tasks that will be performed by them within the lifetime of the project.
The “Work package Chess”, another game-like figure, was created for the second part of the group work. This time, the data flow between one and all other work packages had to be marked for each task-related type of data within 15 minutes.
The main goals of the deployment of these tools were the creation of awareness for data management, the advent of more challenging data management tasks, the identification of data-related subgroups of partners and their needs as well as the specification of data types and data flows within each work package and the facilitation of data-related communication between project partners.
The EU-funded MEET project (Multidisciplinary and multi-context demonstration of EGS exploration and Exploitation Techniques and potentials) started on 1st of May 2018 and brings together 16 partners from 5 countries with different scientific and technical backgrounds (Industry, SME - small and medium enterprises, Universities, Geological Surveys and research institutions). The main objective of the project is to address the increase of the usage of the deep geothermal potential all over Europe. The project is subdivided into eight work packages, which are dedicated to such topics as management and ethics, analysis, construction and demonstration or upscaling, dissemination & communication.
