Platforms

Platforms dealing with the topics as working and living conditions, poverty and vulnerability offer valuable data to the scientific community in order to facilitate and promote research and organise knowledge exchange across a range of geocultural settings. Within the InGRID research infrastructure, multiple platforms are developed, supported or maintained.
