Since 2016, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Europe’s largest organization for applied research, is facing the challenge of implementing and migrating three repository systems: a new current research information system (CRIS), a new open research data repository and the complete renovation of the long-standing bibliographic database »Fraunhofer-Publica«, along with its younger sibling, the open access repository »Fraunhofer-ePrints«. The goal is to implement a unique repository landscape as a key enabler for Open Science. For all systems, DSpace or DSpace-CRIS is being used. The reasons for selecting DSpace were the availability of a plug-in for individual CRIS functionalities, numerous out-of-the-box functionalities, the large, well-organized community and the high amount of successful installations around the globe. The software enables the systems to use entities such as people, projects and organizations jointly. In addition, standard submission workflows for all datatypes and a consistent user experience will be available. The poster will give a simple visual overview of the three basic systems which are or will be running with DSpace / DSpace-CRIS and it will also indicate that using DSpace / DSpace-CRIS for these three systems can offer the possibility to combine the single systems to a kind of virtual “Fraunhofer Open Science Cloud”. The poster addresses the topics of the background, the objectives, the concept and the challenges on the way to the “Fraunhofer Open Science Cloud” using DSpace and DSpace-CRIS.
