What's next for the Visual Framework, and why it is

As the Visual Framework matures and is used by a mix of stakeholders, we're sharing more about the future roadmap and how we make decisions — and work together.

The Visual Framework development is led by EMBL (the European Molecular Biology Laboratory) and the project's components are already in use across projects with many needs that serve internal or external audiences, and intend to do a mix of various activities, ranging from inspirational to functional tasks.

To achieve such a broad range of functionality, there are often different priorities from tabs, to video embeds, to analytics tracking. And sometimes these needs conflict, where a button works well on an inspirational homepage it may not work as well for a task-oriented portal to download viral sequences.

So it's important to communicate to our users and stakeholders:
