The University of Deusto is creating an Ecosystem of Learning and Research Communities improved with scientific and bibliographic contexts, based on the semantic-social platform GNOSS Research Groups. The Deusto Ecosystem has started with the research teams from DeustoTech -the Deusto Institute of Technology- a Research Institute belonging to Deusto Foundation and University of Deusto within the Faculty of Engineering. The DeustoTech online communities are linked to an index with over two million scientific publications in IT from DBLP. The Deusto-GNOSS DBLP node is linked with DBLP, reusing its data and strengthening them with publication abstracts and key words. The University of Deusto spreads the knowledge base of its research teams through online groups or communities that already count with a social and advanced platform for the knowledge management of their work. The aim is to accelerate their research processes. Deusto is also beginning to build its institutional repository within the Deusto Ecosystem to link it, not only with research activity, but also with teaching and learning communities of professors and students. The platform includes tools for collaborative work, social learning, document storage and facet-based searches. It also offers scientific context generated from Linked Data that allows researchers to find papers, documents or thesis, and to update their knowledge to their current work and interests.
