1 DRIVER Step One towards a Pan-European Digital Repository Infrastructure Norbert Lossau Bielefeld University, Germany Scientific coordinator of the Project DRIVER, Funded by the European Commission Consultation Workshop: European Infrastructure for Repositories of Scientific Information, 8-9 June 2006

2 What really counts to researchers or the five Imperatives for the future eInfrastructure in Europe 1.Comprehensive, global access to any type of information 2.Minimum time and resources effort to access and use this information 3.Easy search/navigation, handling, manipulation and re-dissemination of information 4.Maximum visibility to and communication with the research community, research impact 5.Long-term access and preservation of research results

3 DRIVERFacts Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for Europe Partners Start: 1 June 2006 Project Duration: 18 Months Univ. of Bielefeld (scientific co-ordinator, Germany) Univ. of Athens (administrative co-ordinator, Greece) CNR-ISTI (Italy) SURF (The Netherlands) Univ. of Nottingham (UK) CNRS (France) UKOLN (UK) ICM (Poland) Univ. of Gent (Belgium) Univ. of Göttingen (Germany)

4 Objectives To develop a test-bed for integrating existing national, regional and/or thematic repositories in order to create a production-quality European DR infrastructure. This infrastructure will make accessible worldwide, through an initial set of advanced services, these sources virtually organised and structured according to the needs of the specific audience of the user communities.

5 Additional Objectives To identify and promote the use of a relevant set of standards. To prepare the future expansion and upgrade of the DR infrastructure across Europe and to ensure widest possible user involvement.
