The Institute of Information Science and Technologies (ISTI) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), which is organised in 16 laboratories, is committed to producing scientific excellence and playing an active role in technology transfer. The team participating in this proposal belongs to the ‘Multimedia Networked Information System Laboratory’, which consists of 48 researchers and technicians conducting research and development activities on algorithms, techniques and methods for information modelling, access and handling, as well as new architectures and system services (P2P and Grid-based) supporting large networked multimedia information systems.
The CNR-ISTI team has been involved in many EU-funded projects relevant to the topics addressed in this proposal, namely in the following FP6 projects: DELOS II NoE (No. 507618, Scientific Coordinator), DILIGENT (No. 004260, Scientific Coordinator), MultiMatch (No. 033104, Coordinator), BRICKS (No. 507457), BELIEF (No. 026500), CASPAR (No. 033572), DRIVER (No. 034047), SAPIR (No. 45128). It is currently involved in the 7th FP projects: EFG (No. 517006), DRIVER II (No. 212147), D4Science (No. 212488), TrebleClef (No. 215231) and BELIEF II (No.223759).
In the context of the proposal, the CNR-ISTI team will be responsible of the technical coordination of OpenAIRE (WP1) and of the supervision of software production and maintenance workflows in SA and JRA (WP6). Furthermore, the team will be responsible for design and development of content management functionalities for the OpenAIRE System: in WP5 (SA), by coordinating the definition of the System data model and delivering the relative management services; in WP8 (JRA), by delivering research data management prototypes for future System extensions. Finally, the team will participate to technical support activities for third-party organizations willing to interact with the System.
