Program of FAPESP, Imre Simon
The Incubator aims to promote and facilitate the cooperative
development of open digital content of academic,
technological, or social relevance. It provides, through the
Internet, a widely available computational infrastructure that
allows user communities to focus on quality content production
instead of system maintenance.
The Incubator is in operation since August, 2004 at the URL
http://incubadora.fapesp.br and it has 400 projects and 11
users, as of April, 2007. The document at
describes (in English) the basic principles and
characteristics of the Incubator.
