DCMI-EU proposal evaluation results

Tuesday, April 16, 2002

The DCMI-EU proposal has been evaluated by the Eurpoean Commission in the usual procedure with independent evaluators. We have now received the outcome of this evaluation.

Unfortunately, the evaluators have not given the proposal good marks so it is very likely that it will not recieve funding from the European Commission. The evaluators failed to see the benefits of creating a European forum for Dublin Core implementation issues.

As the proposal has attracted much interest in the DCMI community in Europe (with currently 90 organisations involved), a small group of people are now looking at how to build on the interest that was expressed. We will announce further news as soon as it becomes available.
