The REGNET Project is developing building blocks to set up a service infrastructure for organisations and users in the field of Cultural Heritage. These blocks which constitute the REGNET-System are supporting access to cultural & scientific information as well as to product & service information offered by different organisations. The building blocks are outlined in figure 1 (below).
To achieve the objectives
of the REGNET Project the project is divided in two Phases:
Phase I is dedicated to the development and implementation phase to set up the service infrastructure which is build upon the REGNET ‘building blocks’ and consists of three work packages (WP1, WP2, WP3).
II includes the trial
service and is defined as Demonstration Phase (WP4).
packages are broken down in
different tasks each of them having a
responsible task manager. The content and targets of each task is contained in a
'task brief' which will be elaborated before a task starts by the responsible
task manager according to the descriptions included in the work packages.
Work Area A refers to the content creation and content management,
Work Area B refers to the platform engineering (integration of middleware components) and the development of the REGNET building blocks, and
Work Area C covers the enterprise engineering (business process engineering, definition of work flow) and the development of a legal framework.
Work Area D covers the domain specific aspects of the REGNET-System.
Work Area E contains the management of the demonstration phase.
of content to be provided, development of a documentation and digitalisation
plan for content creation and management (Work Area A).
of content and products (Work Area A).
Validation of the REGNET-demonstrator; preparation of the demonstration phase.
The REGNET-System will be used in a trial services which includes an initial testing phase (selected users). The REGNET-demonstration part of the project includes: execution of the demonstration phase (trial service); refinement of system and services where appropriate and necessary; analysis of the trial service.
Development of an exploitation plan on different levels (content providers, service providers, business access points). The plan has to include new models of co-operations and partnerships.
dissemination will be done
using different types of dissemination channels: Project WEB-Site, conferences,
seminars, printed and electronic publications. Special attention will be drawn
to the participation of project members in relevant standardisation committees
This work package includes management, reporting, quality assurance, etc. The management activities are split up into contractual and technical matters and are covered by two different partners.
