CONNEX-TF: your web portal of expertise and connected sectors to the Time & Frequency domain

The CONNEX-TF web portal displays an arranged vision of the thematic Time & Frequency domain.

Users are invited to:
– navigate by Time & Frequency expertise or socio-economical stakes;
– search for specific keywords;
– look up the detailed and summarised cards of the involved structures;
– contribute to keep up to date and to enrich the public information.

According to the selection, users have access to:
– the map of the involved structures;
– the list of the involved structures and their specificities linked to the selection.

The CONNEX-TF project, which is driven by FIRST-TF, fall within the following aims:
– to give a larger visibility to Time & Frequency activities;
– to help with the network’s development, by identifying works to do in partnership;
– to encourage to share information in a national and international context;
– to enable the identification of expertise to develop and of promising sectors.
