CRMPA has been taking part in numerous National and International research projects. The main areas of Research and Development are:  


Learning & Knowledge Technologies

Main research and activity lines:

  • Personalization of the educational experience in relation to the objectives, context, behavior and preferences of the users.  
  • High-level access to knowledge  through natural language queries. 
  • Knowledge Management: Discovery, extraction, representation, management and sharing of implicit and explicit knowledge within a company environment. 
  • Competency management within a company environment: automatic creation of project teams, gap analysis related to educational objectives and the skills to be acquired, evaluation through key performance indicators. 
  • Personal Environment:  Optimal management of activities and processes, as well as the sharing and automatic correlation between them through the utilization of common ontological patterns. 
  • Simulation and collaboration techniques for learning:  game – based learning, serious games, communities. 

Future Internet

Main Research and activity lines:

  • Models and systems for Virtual Organizations and Extended Enterprises: management of participants and of company policies.  
  • Architectural patterns for Cloud Computing.
  • Software Solutions and Services  based on Microsoft technologies.
  • Models and solutions for Enterprise Social Network and Community.  
  • Advanced solutions for service discovery, interoperability and application cooperation. 
  • Software Development Approach Definitions based on software factory models (DSL, patterns, etc.) and Agili methodologies (SCRUM). 

Semantic Technologies

Main research and activity lines:

  • All resources, methodologies and tools helpful to encourage access and sharing of information assets. 
  • Semantic Web, modelling, semantic annotation, ontologies. 
  • Applications in the field of e-learning and creation of Personal Working Learning Environment (PWLE). 

The above-mentioned areas represent the Consortium's milestone taks, and allow the development of integrated and technologically advanced solutions.  


CRMPA's experience and relevance in research and development projects, as well as its production on a national and international level, are proven by high value scientific and technological projects, scientific community recognitions and many collaborations with several industrial and scientific partnerships.
