WP2. Technical architecture
Workpackage 2 will develop and deliver the technical architecture required to host, integrate and sustain the Scratchpad framework within the ViBRANT consortium. This moves the Scratchpad prototype into a sustainable open-source, enterprise-level system. As part of this workpackage we will: develop and deliver an enhanced technical framework for hosting the Scratchpad infrastructure; distribute the Scratchpad server so that other institutions can independently host Scratchpads; develop new functionality for Scratchpads, including human interfaces and APIs and develop a financial model for sustainable delivery of service. The workpackage will be run from the Natural History Museum, London and will engage partners at BGBM who will lead in the multi-site integration component of the workpackage.
