Commission to host workshop on digital repositories

May 31, 2006

Brussels, 30 May 2006

The European Commission will host a workshop on the development of infrastructures for repositories of scientific information, on the 8 and 9 June, in Brussels.

The workshop aims to assess the role of Digital Repositories (DR) in Europe's future research infrastructure, and in particular to consider how DR could form an effective part of e-infrastructure.

The issues to be debated include:

  • Views on knowledge infrastructures, and their impact in different scientific areas of research and education;

  • A review of the use and purpose of different aspects of knowledge infrastructure: technological, operational and organisational;

  • Lessons learned from initiatives in different EU Member States and other regions, and how could these help in tailoring pan-European initiatives.

The event will be held in anticipation of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), for which the Commission is carrying a number of impact assessment initiatives, addressing the area of DR and knowledge infrastructures as background of its future policy work.
