Development and support


We announced the development of Prometheus to the EUI Web Working Group in the last quarter of 2016 and we kept discussing it during subsequent web meetings.

We have developed Prometheus internally and we will offer full support, in line with the strategy adopted for all the  EUI centralised web services.

A BETA version of Prometheus was tested with approx. 10 staff members and researchers, with an advanced users behaviour test.

Prometheus BETA 0.9 was published on Wednesday 6 December 2017 and will run in parallel with the old search engine (Google Custom Search) for at least 3 months.

We plan to dismiss the old search system by March 2018, and this decision appears even more needed after the recent announcement from Google to dismiss the custom search product for websites.

Google has officially announced that the Custom Search product will be completely shut down by April 1st, 2018. 

The fine tuning of Prometheus and its future developments will be discussed with the EUI Web Working Group during the upcoming months.

Search results


We designed and maintain the algorithm used by Prometheus to define the search ranking across the centralised web services.

We will constantly review it, in collaboration with the Web Working Groupusing the feedback of our internal and external users as well as all our monitoring systems.

We will keep offering support and training to all our web editors through the Web Working Group, in order to make sure that appropriate efforts are put on Search Engine Optimisation for Prometheus, Google or any other search interface that might be useful for our users now and in the future.
