During the Euforic/EADI case study workshop ‘Showcasing Knowledge and Information Services’ Richard Lalleman talked about the Focuss.Initiative. is a collaborative platform of peers in the field of global development who are storing and sharing regional, national and international knowledge of valuable electronic resources. The portal provides a place to store and share knowledge by indexing social bookmarking websites.

The added value of the search engine provided by is that it offers resources which are usually not available on normal search engines like google.

Mr. Lalleman called on development staff to start social bookmarking their resources and to join the foccuss.initiative to make the platform even more valuable.
