Sustainability Marketplace

Collaboration and sustainability:  this web site called Sustainability Marketplace (from CalPoly/San Luis Obispo) is  great example of a portal  that others could create for users of all types (students, nonprofits, business, academics, librarians, etc) to post research-based projects that they working on, want to collaborate on, or to find an existing projects. Academic libraries could think about creating this sort of portal for their campus? Are there any out there already?

Sustainability Marketplace: Connecting People and Projects is “meant to function as a marketplace for students, staff, faculty and community members who are looking to get involved…join an existing project, submit projects that need teams, or enter an online discussion with others interested in our sustainable community.” It was created for people on campus at Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo community work together on projects for sustainability.
