JISC Culture Campus Liverpool Portal Project

LARC members are working with the universities in the city, Culture Campus Liverpool, SMAC and Liverpool City of Learning, to develop an innovative portal for universities and cultural organisations in Liverpool to display in one place their continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities and activities.


The CCLiP Portal will provide a central point for drawing-in and capturing many of the activities, events, knowledge and learning opportunities and expertise arising within all organisations involved in the project. It is based on a CPD Noticeboard already established by Liverpool City of Learning for the health, business and education sectors (http://www.cpdnoticeboard.ac.uk/site/.)


This project supports Culture Campus’s intention to create a new form of partnership between cultural organisations and higher education institutions, sharing a common agenda and collaborating in activities designed to ensure that Liverpool is one of the most attractive cities in Europe in which to pursue advanced cultural study and to develop a career in the creative industries

The technical schema used for this project, XCRi, will enable information on the portal to be automatically updated direct from partners’ websites.   This is a significant development, as it will mean the portal will always be up to date, thus saving a great deal of staff time as partners will not have to keep on re-entering data on a regular basis. XCRi has now been adopted by the National Information Standards Board for education, skills and children’s services, and it is likely to be more widely adopted across the public sector.   European adoption of XCRi is also underway.

Led by the University of Liverpool, the project is currently under development, with the intention that the portal will go live in Autumn 2010.
