Ambitious aims To build up the world leading video scientific online service that will change the current scientific education and universities model Free access to the lectures from well known conferences Free access to lectures from high reputation universities To allow free and unlimited access to high quality scientific lectures from the prominent lecturers, universities and conferences around the world To open to the researchers and students from poor, underdeveloped and third countries the access to the expensive conferences and university programmes To enrich the learning experience with the most advanced content technologies, media and devices
Global Impact Impact to scientific community Targeting the scientific community Research projects Conferences Impact to industries Knowledge transfer and training Impact to society Free and open, accessible to everyone Widening the scope
How? Combining the three communities - Leaders in their field EU universities – OpenCDN base+ semantic technologies and services on the top OCWC – standards, curricula, content Opencast– content gathering/coding/channeling software EU funded research project (3-4 years, from 3M to 10M Euros) New business models New open training organisational models Integrated solution (gather-organise-channel-comment) Semantically rich services including
Funding options EU funds from: ICT RTD programme CIP PSP programme Joint research funds like Eureka Support from national funds in Europe Support from investors Some expression of interest already
What are our strengths? Deep involvement in EU co-funded research JSI: 111 institutions only on EU RTD EU wide visibility Strategic decisions by many academic institutions to go “open” Coherent and established group of institutions in Pascal Still 4 years of funding Representatives of the most active institutions worldwide and the most prominent communities complementariness Excellent research track record (+ links) on content handling/understanding

ICT programme - DL Objective ICT-2009.4.1: Digital libraries and digital preservation a) Scalable systems and services for preserving digital content: b) Advanced preservation scenarios: Methods and tools for preserving complex objects, Intelligent digital curation and preservation systems able to learn, reason and act autonomously, c) Innovative solutions for assembling multimedia digital libraries Research under this Challenge should take into consideration relevant technologies and other results from successfully completed or ongoing projects. IP/STREP: EUR 56 million with a minimum of 50% to IPs NoE and CSA: EUR 13 million;
Expected Impact Significant advances in the ability to offer easily customisable access services to scientific and cultural digital resources, improving their use, experiencing and understandings; Reinforced capacity for organisations to preserve digital content in a more effective and cost-efficient manner, safeguarding the authenticity and integrity of these records; Significant reduction in the loss of irreplaceable information and new opportunities for its re-use, contributing to efficient knowledge production; Leading edge research in Europe strengthened through restructuring of the digital libraries and digital preservation research landscape. Leveraged impact of research results.
Consortia competences Knowledge and context technologies, semantics Cognitive systems Digital libraries, standards, structures Distributed content Multimodal content but video as the main driver Critical mass
ICT programme - TEL Objective ICT-2009.4.2: Technology-enhanced learning Learning in the 21st Century: large-scale pilots for the design of the future classroom (exploring both technology and teaching practices, for teachers and students, their orchestration for specific, justified age groupings or subjects), supporting individualisation, collaborations, creativity and expressiveness in more active, reflective and independent learning activities. Research should address innovation in learning and teaching, the underlining change processes, relevant new summative and formative assessment methods and novel solutions supporting the active participation of a wider community of stakeholders contributing to student’s growth.
