Providing an online platform where laboratories can sign up for an account and create their own website. Powered by WordPress, the design should accommodate most common requirements researchers tend to demand.
JSON API & Portal
We would like to aggregate all lab content and provide somewhat of a portal to all content. To do so, we would first need to provide an (JSON) API. This will contain the latest events, openings, news and more. This goal plays a key role into making research content more discoverable and more accessible.
When multiple laboratories work together on the same project, it would make sense their websites share the same, consistent information about that project. Ideally, they would share (or rather synchronize) the same content across different sites.
Some projects just need that little extra attention. Therefore, we want to enable research labs to create custom sites for specific projects or technology, while preserving their relationship with the rest of the content.
In addition to the laboratory sites, we would also like to enable researchers to build their own, professional site. This site would, of course, be linked to their laboratory site and share the same content (e.g. projects, publications, etc.).
