Lessons learned procuring a data discovery platform

National models for service delivery

This presentation will reflect on two experiences of coordinating adoption of a CRIS platform at the national level. In the course of one year, sixty-six Italian institutions adopted the same platform, a version of DSpace-CRIS called IRIS, customized for the Italian research evaluation exercise. More recently, the Peruvian National Council for Science, Technology and Innovation adopted DSpace-CRIS to implement a centralized national CRIS platform.

Supporting Open Infrastructure

This past year has shown us the increased need and demand for investments in openness across all areas of research and scholarship -- from content and data to the underlying systems that make those discoveries available and accessible to the world. Invest in Open Infrastructure is an initiative dedicated to improving the funding and resourcing for those underlying technologies and systems. This talk will speak to some of the critical issues and questions surrounding the open technologies necessary to meet the current demand for openness in research and scholarship.

Kaitlin Thaney, Invest in Open Infrastructure
