The idea is to use this page to amend the text for the WP description in the DoW. Please edit this wiki page directly, and use the "insert" and "delete" mark-up to show changes, as illustrated:

  • Provide the public portal to the project

Description of work and role of partners

Task 5210 : Consortium management (Start M1, duration 48 months, partners: STFC)

Organise periodic project meetings as defined in Section B2.1

Oversee dissemination activities and ensure access rights are respected.

Co-ordinate timely production of deliverables and preparation for mandatory mid-term and end-of-term reviews. Implement conflict management procedures defined in Section B2.1 as required.

Task 5220 : Set up project public website (Start M1, duration unlimited, partners: STFC)

Produce and maintain the project web site, which is a major source of information about the project.

Task 5230 : Information sharing portal (Start M1, duration unlimited, partners APA)

Produce the information sharing portal for the project, using for example Alfresco (http://www.alfresco.com/) or similar product.

Task 5340 : Identification of new partners

It is important to extend the scope of the Network of Excellence during the runtime of the project in order to bring in new ideas and conduct exploratory research around them.

We will implement a systematic approach to address and integrate new needs, actors and potentials in the landscape.

In order to identify new innovative research approaches as an ongoing process, we may set up an automated process based on statistical evaluation of various sources of information such as research results and publication venues such as mainstream digital preservation conferences and journals (iPRES, DCC, Digital Library conferences such as JCDL, ECDL, archival conferences and journals), but specifically also those outside the core domain such as eGovernment, medical/industrial records management, software engineering, and science of the sciences. For example, there are specialised companies on the stage working for the EU and they could help to identify and invite relevant projects and activities in the field of preservation as well as application domains and technology providers for focussed workshop sessions. Using these or other means we will integrate a method for systematic research evaluation and agenda setting.

A separate fund of up to 5% of the project budget will be reserved by the co-ordinator to fund the additional participants.

Adding future partners to the consortium shall follow a pre-defined procedure:

  • Definition of the competences the current consortium is lacking – these gaps should become clear as we develop our integrated vision.
  • Create a profile the future partner shall fulfil
  • Identification of potential partner(s) that might be able to fill that gap
  • Analyse potential partner and check work/publications in relevant field
  • Send out invitation to potential partner

List of deliverables

  • D52.1 Project Web Site (M5)

Description of deliverables

D52.1) Project Web Site: This web site will be part of the Alliance for Permanent Access (APA) web site in order help to transform the APA site into the authoritative source of information about digital preservation. This will help the transformation of the APA into a Virtual centre of Excellence. In association with this site we will include a members’ only site for access to non-public information [month 5]

Further revisions in response to feedback from Project Officer 12th/14th December
