Aim and Scope

The aim of the track on European and National Projects of the 12th MTSR 2018 is to promote collaboration, networking, knowledge sharing and output dissemination among EU and non-EU projects related to digital libraries, open repositories, cultural heritage, metadata, semantics, ontologies, research information systems, data infrastructures, linked and big data research. In particular, the objectives of this track are:

  • To bring together representatives from different EU and non-EU projects for the purpose of knowledge sharing, problem solving, collaboration and brainstorming.
  • To provide the opportunity for representatives of these projects to engage with conference participants, disseminate research output and receive feedback, or seek collaboration and expertise.
  • To identify new opportunities for EU and non-EU-funded digital libraries, cultural heritage and open repositories research, metadata, semantics and linked data research.
