New Internal Project Partner Database to Come

Published: April 1, 2020

In the year 2018, HORIZONT3000 has undertaken its first intellectual capital report (Wissensbilanz). One main outcome and recommendation of it was to manage more systematically our information and knowledge about our local Partner Organisations.


So far, HORIZONT3000 has managed the various information and knowledge on Partner Organisations in different word files and documents. A more efficient online-based solution has, however, been discussed for more than two years now.

We all know the saying “Rome was not built in a day” or as our dear colleagues in Senegal would say “Ndank ndank moy jaap golo ci njai” (“only with patience you will catch the monkey in the forest”).

Even though it took some time to get the necessary funding, we can now proudly inform you that programming of our NEW INTERNAL PROJECT PARTNER DATABASE has started in January 2020 and is on the right track!

The objective of our new internal database is to collect all strategically relevant information and knowledge about all our Partner Organisations (cofinancing and TA-programme) in one database to make analysing and passing on knowledge about Project Partners easier and more efficient.

User and target group of the internal database is HORIZONT3000 staff (in the regional/ country offices and Vienna office).

The database will cover the following information/ knowledge:

  • Basic information on Partner Organisations
  • Cooperation history
  • Capacity analysis
  • TA placement assessment

We are currently testing a very first version and we are convinced that by the end of this summer we can already work with it!

If you have questions regarding the internal database, don’t hesitate to contact me (Petra Herout) here.
