The Division of Energy Planning and Nuclear Information and Knowledge comprises the Planning and Economic Studies Section, Nuclear Knowledge Management Section and the Nuclear Information Section. The Division is responsible for strengthening capacities in energy and nuclear power planning, building capacities to manage nuclear knowledge and provide knowledge management services to interested member states, and to procure and provide printed and electronic information in the area of nuclear science and technology.
The Nuclear Knowledge Management Section assists Member States by developing methodology and guidance documents in nuclear knowledge management; implementing KM initiatives; facilitating sustainable education, training and information exchange in nuclear science and technology; and assisting Member States in maintaining and preserving nuclear knowledge.
The Nuclear Knowledge Management (NKM) Section Hub project has the objective of creating a digital hub that will act as the major source of NKM information, provide guidance and advice together with a forum for the exchange of best practice and new developments from Member States. The goal is to provide the Member States with a web-based 'one stop shop' to share externally key topics/areas/events of interest associated with NKM and to increase awareness of the importance of having knowledge management practices integrated into current organizational activities; enhanced ability to apply knowledge management guidance and methodologies in planning, designing and implementing nuclear knowledge management programmes in nuclear organizations, extend capability for reach-out and broader collaboration to and between Member States and to present the data in a comprehensive and coherent view to Member States, in order to facilitate ease of finding nuclear knowledge management information.
To meet these requirements, IAEA will engage a user interface/user experience designer (or design services provider) to work with the development team and propose a user interface design that delivers on the requirements.
Functions / Key Results Expected
To design the UI for the Nuclear Knowledge Management Hub (NKM Hub) with a goal of simple navigation scheme, to contain and ease the "findability" of the information assets required (the draft Information Architecture to be shared with the Consultant).
To improve the user experience, advise the IAEA team members and/or carry out necessary technical work to achieve the set goal, interact with the users and database developers, and provide detailed mock-ups of the UI for approval.
Provide the digital assets required to implement the design (CSS, fonts, images, etc.).
The existing IAEA SharePoint master page causes some limitations for the designer. In consideration of this, deliver draft user interface designs and digital assets based on approved mock-ups, information architecture, use cases and IAEA branding guidelines. The design should\:
Present the information in a non-cluttered and easy to read display;
Follow latest trends in navigation, user experience enhancement, data/information visualization and data aggregation;
Offer different ways to browse the information;
Be responsive for viewing on Agency devices (PC, laptops, iPad, iPhone) for specific pages (to be discussed); and,
Be scalable allowing for future growth of data and the type of information resources that are surfaced.
Based on feedback from the user interface design draft, complete the finalized design and provide all digital assets to the development team.
Provide adequate design documentation for the development team and for proper project archiving.
