International Advisory Group




International Advisory Group Information

A key objective of DRI is to build strong international links with experts in the development of national trusted digital repositories to ensure that the DRI is developed in line with international best practice and is informed of continuing developments in this field.  To ensure this, an International Advisory Group was established during DRI's initial Programme for Research in Third-Level Institutions (PRTLI) funding stage (2011-2015). DRI is in the process of renewing this group as an Expert Advisory Group (EAG) of national and international professionals. We aim to convene the first EAG in Q4 of 2021. We will update this page when the EAG has had its first meeting. The following individuals were part of the original International Advisory Group:
