'OceanExpert Developer' Consultant: Request for Written Proposal

UNESCO

UNESCO is inviting written proposals from Individual Consultants for development of OceanExpert, a global database containing information on people, institutions, documents and events that have a relation to ocean related expertise in the broadest sense possible. OceanExpert is developed and maintained by the IOC project office for IODE, located in Oostende, Belgium. The OceanExpert database is a self-subscribing service, which means that the experts are entering their own data, the data about their institutes, events and are responsible for keeping that information up to date. Their database is plugged into various IOC databases allowing the management of events, their participants and documentation.
