Collaboration Opportunity Finder
We have designed and implemented a software tool coFinder — a collaboration opportunity finder — aimed at facilitating the work of an opportunity broker in Collaborative Networked Organizations. It crawls the web to find potential collaboration opportunities (calls for tenders) and compares them with the actual competencies of companies from a Virtual organization Breeding Environment (VBE). The coFinder tool then structures, aligns and matches textual descriptions of calls for tenders with competencies and suggests a list of potential collaboration opportunities to the broker.
