The PALETTE project aims at facilitating and augmenting individual and organisational learning in Communities of Practice (CoPs). Towards this aim, an interoperable and extensible set of innovative services as well as a set of specific scenarios of use have been designed, implemented and thoroughly validated in CoPs of diverse contexts.
The above services and scenarios  support:
  • incremental convergence towards a comprehensive representation of practices;
  • argumentative debates about practices;
  • enhancement of practices through knowledge exploration, inside and outside of the CoPs;
  • provision of procedures for the reification and creation of new practices

European projects are always great places to get to know the most interesting people. Colleagues stemming from different countries, coming from the most varied cultures and speaking other languages bring together the best they have to offer: their competences, their enthusiasm and their positive visions of the future. It was in such a context that we got to know Rose. Amongst the seventy researchers taking part in the PALETTE project, Rose led the work on knowledge management and on ontologies.
She was superior at sparking off a great deal of enthusiasm about these subjects close to her heart not only amongst her colleagues, but also amongst the professional communities with whom we worked. She knew how to work with a wide range of people from well-known scientists to the users of the web services we developed. In addition to being a brilliant,  world-wide recognised and respected scientist, she had a knack of finding suitable ways to get across complex ideas to a wide variety of people.
Beyond her unique competences as a scientist and a teacher, she also knew how to listen … and to appreciate life … and work hard … and create innovative ideas … and inspire people … and face difficulties … and shine … and laugh. We will always remember Rose bursting out laughing in our meetings or during a meal taken together. We will also remember the lively jingle of the bracelets that invariably hung around her wrists …
Our thoughts go out today to her family. We also think fondly of her fellow colleagues from INRIA with whom Rose worked in close collaboration.
We will all miss her so much!
Bon voyage, Rose.
