To navigate the Project Explorer you can:

  • Zoom in on different locations and click the icons on the map to bring up networks, solutions, or projects that have been shared. You can zoom using your mouse or the + and – buttons on the left hand side of them map.
  • Filter by different categories highlighted above the Project Explorer map, including by theme and network, content available, or country.
  • Search for keywords to highlight/filter the information on the map that is relevant.
  • If you do not want to view this as a map, you can view the content as a list by clicking the ‘View as list’ button above the map.
