27 March 2003REGNET Final Project Review 4 SUMMING UP Work Progress Work progress was in line with the overall project planning according to the contract. REGNET has set-up a service infrastructure in 5 European regions with a potential of an extension into 2 additional regions. The project is by now well known in the cultural heritage field, especially in those regions where the first national test beds have been carried out, and new partnerships and cooperations are under discussion

27 March 2003REGNET Final Project Review 8 SUMMING UP Results The platform engineering delivered a state of the art concept and implementation how to set up a technical infrastructure to interconnect different platforms and WEB- based services (SOAP, WEB-Services, etc); test samples of some REGNET-data bases can be accesses via the OAI- Harvesting Protocol
27 March 2003REGNET Final Project Review 9 The business (cross enterprise) engineering delivered a workable framework for cooperation on the global market and a European Economic Interest Group (Cultural Service Centres – Europe EEIG) and extensive definition of relevant business processes in the cultural domain SUMMING UP Results

All REGNET activities delivered such promising and valuable results that it was already during the project life time possible to act on the global market place; for example the CULTIVATE-Services offered during the demonstration phase brought in several external partners and feedback from real business operations.
