DRIVER - Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research
Project website:  DRIVER 
Principal Investigator: Michael Hatzopoulos
Duration: 01/06/2006 - 30/11/2007

The testbed is the first step towards a vision of preparing a pan-European, digital repository infrastructure, which will ultimately be an integral part of the European e-infrastructure.

DRIVER will start by exploiting existing state-of-the-art digital library and repository technologies, including Grid services. It will then build a testbed which will incorporate, initially, 51 networked institutional repositories from 5 countries.

In parallel, DRIVER intends to gradually expand the number of repositories, by identifying new candidates, and by encouraging institutions throughout Europe to set up institutional repositories and their researchers to deposit their material.
