(17 August 2009) The process towards inclusion of C&E data in EURISCO has taken off (activity 2-05). The proposal has been widely circulated, and feedback has been received. A road map has been formulated and is now being implemented.
(22 May 2009) The proposal for inclusion of C&E data in EURISCO, as discussed in the May 7th EPGRIS3 meeting in Bonn, has been uploaded to the relevant activity 2-05.
(8 May 2009) EPGRIS3 activities 2-05 and 2-06 had a meeting on May 7th in Bonn to discuss the proposal for inclusion of C&E data in EURISCO. A -draft- report is available, with links to all presentations given there. The revised proposal is not available yet.
EPGRIS3 is a project of the ECPGR Documentation and Information Network. It is based upon the belief that doing things collaboratively can result in better results than working alone. The project is based on self-funded voluntary actions.
Based on an initial 'wishlist' of activities compiled by the members of the ECPGR Documentation and Information Network Coordinating Group and Eurisco Advisory Group (see links to documents), a list of activities, with activity leaders and collaborators has been compiled. The Task Leaders will be asked to draft a workplan, that will also be published on the web.
How to join
If you are working in PGR documentation and information and believe that doing it collaboratively can result in better outputs than working alone, have a look at the list of activities and send a message to us at the EPGRIS3 secretariat indicating that you would like to lead or participate in one or more of these activities. If you think you have an activity to add and are interested in leading this activity, feel free to send a message to the EPGRIS3 secretariat. We will add your activity to the list. Activities are expected to be self-sustainable, since EPGRIS3 is not providing additional funds.
The quality of any initiative (idea, service, product or whatever) depends to a very large extend on the feedback of the ones the initiative is aimed at. So, if you have anything you think might help improve EPGRIS3: concept, approach, website or anything else, please send an email to the coordinator or one of the sub-coordinators (see the top-right corner of this page for the email addresses). We promise it will be taken very seriously.
