Although OpenAtlas is freely available at GitHub, not every project has the internal resources to cover all the aspects needed for a successful research project. It is therefore possible, to cooperate with the ACDH-CH, an institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences if budget is available. For current and former cooperations see: projects. Within a cooperation some or all of the the aspects below can be covered. Furthermore, a cooperation supports and therefore guaranties the further development of OpenAtlas.

If you are interested in a cooperation regarding an open data project, feel free to contact us at openatlas@oeaw.ac.at.
Please provide the following information in your email.

Software development

Due to differing research design and research questions, there might be a need for:

The development of features can be time consuming and tied to costs. Though, once new features are implemented, they can be used by all OpenAtlas projects which allow for shared costs and synergies between projects.

Infrastructure

Certain infrastructure is needed to use OpenAtlas, e.g. a server to install and make OpenAtlas available, as well as experienced personal to:

Support

Even with infrastructure in place, support might be needed for e.g.

Presentation website

Once data is entered and research results are available, a possibility to present these findings to a broader audience might be desirable.

Long term archiving

Long-term archiving of data with meta data and make them available online for future use is highly advised. At the ACDH-CH this is possible within ARCHE.
