During this time, a prototype will be developed based on one domain (tourism). At the end of the evaluation phase it will be applied to a second domain (regional information system) in order to prove its functional ability. The prototype will be multilingually designed from the start. Initial language will be German and then will be subsequently expanded with Englsch. GETESS will have the following characteristics:
