CLARIN Technical Infrastructure How far are we?
Short Overview CLARIN is one of the 44 accepted ESFRI Roadmap Initiatives official start: , Kick-off: June Mitglieder Institute aus 31 EU Ländern EC Funds: 32 Partner from 22 EU Ländern (4.1 Mio, 3 J) various national Funds (D-SPIN in D, NL until 2014, Fi, Dk, Fr, Ro, Hu, Sp, It, Pt, Ös, Mt: ca. 15 Mio) CLARIN is indeed European

Major Functions centres as backbones of the infrastructure hosting/offering various services federation of centres and trust domain visibility and access to LRT, virtual collection building joint metadata domain service oriented architecture - domain of web services advanced applications such as combined metadata and content in joint domain
Centre Types centres are the backbone of any infrastructure 6 types of centres R recognized centres with a web-site etc C centres that offer rich metadata via standard pipes B centres that offer md and access to resources A centres that offer infrastructure services (100% available) (ISOcat, registries, md portal, etc) E centres offering services but are external (SARA: PID, execution, quality check, etc) K centres giving advice (can be many) A/B: MPI, INL, Meertens
Criteria - B Type offer some useful services for a guaranteed period of time explicit statements about services (availability, stability) stability of service even when end of operation proper repository system with clear APIs for a certain identifier deliver the same resource/service clear statements about business model and IPR treatment must participate in quality assessment participate in CLARIN SPF adhere to CLARIN protocols and agreements (OAI PMH) offer a deposit service and do curation explicit funding statement required centres need IT experts and setting up things requires funds
Criteria - A Type borderline with B Type not that strict centres that give services that are relevant for infrastructure and not just offering their own LRT ISOcat, various registries (centres, schema, relation, etc) md portal, PID service etc 100% availability required strong IT group required
