What is a compendium?

A compendium is a "collection of concise but detailed information about a particular subject, especially in a book or other publication".

ImproVal's Compendium on validation tools for volunteers aimed at doing a synthesis. It is completed by an annex (excel file with list of all tools) and a map of the tools. Its preliminary results are presented in the project's first Webinar.
