SNML-FCP – Future Content Platforms

The traditional way of creating content involves many different steps and often is a time-consuming as well as expensive endeavor. Contents are often restricted by the respective type of media they are to be used for (e.g. text and images for a newspaper), which also mostly leave little space for user-generated contents. However, current developments on the internet like “social software” and the “semantic web” are gradually changing the way contents are consumed.

The “Future Content Platforms“ (FCP) project investigates how a traditional content provider like the daily newspaper “Salzburger Nachrichten” can react to this kind of developments and make its online and print offers even more attractive. The ultimate goal of the project is to develop an innovative, knowledge-based online platform for the region of Salzburg, including a news and market portal as well as new ways of reader interaction.
