10 Role of CAX in CD&E BULGARIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES CAX enable good “stimulation” of thinking and experimentation, as well good furnishing of documentary evidence trough the experimentation process CAX enable good “stimulation” of thinking and experimentation, as well good furnishing of documentary evidence trough the experimentation process CAX enable knowledge accumulation in time for different groups of participants, scenarios and periods CAX enable knowledge accumulation in time for different groups of participants, scenarios and periods CAX enable concept experimentation, technological demonstrations, testing of system architecture for decision making CAX enable concept experimentation, technological demonstrations, testing of system architecture for decision making
