Manager International Collaboration
Head of Outreach and Institutional Support
Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC)
After 18 months, the Knowledge Exchange initiative, a European collaboration on e-infrastructure by four national organizations of the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, has finished its incubation phase. The four partners recognize the benefits of sharing information in a structured manner and have established new networks that allow for parallel and cross fertilizing activities. The presentation will give an insight in the working processes that have been developed and highlight the progress made in collaborative policy making and network activities: these include Institutional Repositories, National Licenses, Sustainability and Strategic policy alignment in the EU. Potential new areas for further cooperation, such as the international e-Framework and Trust Federations across access management systems, will be explored next, as well as promising links to US developments in relevant areas.
