For europeana openup will provide
For Europeana, OpenUp! will provide

  • a single access point to distributed non-bibliographic multimedia content in the natural history domain

  • validation mechanisms to ensure compliance with EUROPEANA standards.

  • sustained item-level access by integration with existing networks in the domain (i.e. GBIF, BioCASE and CETAF).

  • metadata enrichment by means of multilingual metadata vocabularies and thesauri for natural history data (e.g. names) to enhance cross-linking of Europeana content.

  • a mechanism to extend participation in content provision.


For the natural history data community openup will provide
For the natural history data community, OpenUp! will provide

  • 80% funding for 275 person months of qualified staff time for data cleaning and quality control.

  • increased relevance of our data by inclusion in EUROPEANA.

  • tools for quality control of species names and other data.

  • help to further implement BioCASE technologies and thus data provision for GBIF.

  • funding for a multilingual index of common names.

  • technical solutions for shared but distributed information infrastructures.






Wp7 extension of the network
WP7 “Extension of the Network”

  • Offer a helpdesk facility for provider and users within and beyond the Consortium partners

  • Provide access to existing and newly produced documentation and tutorials for the services of OpenUp!

  • Formulate the procedures and outreach strategies for adding associated partners to enlarge the provider community beyond the current consortium members

  • Lead: MRAC Tervuren, main partner: GBIF France, further partners GBIF-Belgium, GBIF-Finland, GBIF-Denmark, GBIF-Germany (ZFMK) and the GBIF Secretariat
