  6. 6. Take care: build together better functionalities
  7. 7. Crowd-Funding Openness We support open source and open standards and actively contribute to them Launch of a new Module - Descrip6on of the available features - Roadmap with enhancements - Target budget - Minimum contribu6on Target budget is reached Full release of the code to the Community Ins+tu+ons become Supporters - Immediate access to current and future code - Impact on the Roadmap
  8. 8.

  9. 9. CKAN Add-On Module •  CKAN: widey adopted Open Source Data Repository enabling open data •  Great! your researcher will be so happy to use another tool…?!? •  The module adds the CKAN open data unique features to DSpace and DSpace-CRIS avoiding researchers to use another tool •  Easy to link publica6ons, persons, projects with the dataset •  Stronger long term preserva6on strategy, dataset versioning +
