One of the main goals of the Collaborative Space is the strengthen of the VHL as a technical cooperation model, based on information management and scientific-technical knowledge, in communicating effectively and periodical its users. These communities facilitate and make viable the communication between the users, even on an asynchronous way and therefore without time and space limitations. The communication is encouraged by the easiness access to the information available, e.g. in galleries of documents and images, news, discussion forums, chats and blogs, all of them part of a collaborative space.
