DuraSpace presents a Community Webinar, DSpace for Research Data Management: Fordatis – a DSpace Solution

On Tuesday, November 20, 2018 (10:00am ET/4:00p.m. CET convert to your timezone), join Andrea Wuchner and Dirk Eisengräber-Pabst of Fraunhofer, Europe’s largest application orientated research organization, when they present, “DSpace for Research Data Management: Fordatis – a DSpace Solution.”

The recent Open Data project “FORDATIS aims to establish a research data repository not only under the FAIR principles, but also that is well-connected to both the publication repository and internal data management systems.  In this webinar, “Fordatis – a DSpace Solution” the presenters will discuss the issues of customization and implementation of an open access research data repository drawing from their experiences.

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s research activities are conducted by 72 institutes and research units spread  throughout Germany. As all 72 institutes have their own requirements, needs and they’re focused on different research activities, the challenge for the team working on the Fordatis project was to develop a solution that could collect different use cases, address the various needs and meet the diverse requirements.

The presentation will highlight their requirements and use cases, why they decided on DSpace, how they customized DSpace to meet their needs, the lessons they learned and future plans.  The one-hour webinar will conclude with a question answer session.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
