The application was supposed to draw upon data gathered in 5.7, even if initialy available only for a few countries. Agree to the Scottish pilot comment that it is not possible to test any functionality without a pre-existing dataset. Have developers used some existing data for internal testing? Overall, the concept behind innovation maps present an interesting idea how to use and interpret data to track the implementation of RIS3. It is clear though that without a connection to a data repository (even if available for very few countries/regions) this application will not be used. Users need to see what the application is able to generate before they launch their own data gathering efforts. Consortium decision necessary on this app.
