Application partners

  • Hannes Kulovits
    is head of the Digital Archive division at the Austrian State Archives, where he is
    responsible for operations, further development, compliance and certification of the digital long-term repository. He will apply the capability maturity model developed in BenchmarkDP and conduct a critical review of its value, applicability, and fitness for purpose in his organisation.
  • Claudia Nicolai
    is a Knowledge & Information Management Officer in Internet and Internal
    Communications at the Food & Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in Rome. She has been involved in development and maintenance of document workflow,
    repositories and dissemination through the FAO Web site. She has recently moved to the Internet and Internal Communications unit, where she is responsible of the Digital Preservation activities related to the FAO Website. In BenchmarkDP, she will coordinate the critical application and evaluation of the capability assessment framework in the FAO context.

Former team members

  • Jose Luis Borbinha
    is tenured Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (DEI) at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal
    His research interests include Conceptual Modeling and Enterprise Architecture, with application to digital libraries and digital preservation. As former Director for Innovation and Development of the National Library of Portugal (which included responsiblity for IT) and professor in computer science, he has profound interest in the strategic importance of Enterprise Architecture and IT Governance for information systems, especially in scenarios of Enterprise Content Management.
  • Artur Caetano
    is tenured Assistant Professor of Information Systems at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (DEI) at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal, where he teaches courses on enterprise architecture, business process modelling, service-oriented architectures and object-oriented modelling. He is also invited researcher at the Information Systems Group, INESC-ID and researcher and unit coordinator of the Centre for Organizational Design & Engineering, INESC-INOV.
  • Goncalo Antunes
    goncalo

    is a researcher of the Information Systems Group at INESC-ID – Research and Development Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering. He is also a Ph.D. student in Information Systems and Computer Engineering at the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon working with the concept of capability. His main interests are in the areas of Capability Engineering, Requirements Engineering, and Methods Engineering. In particular, he is looking into improving systems engineering methods through the notion of system capabilities.

Advisors

  • Andreas Rauber
    is Associate Professor at the Department of Software Technology and Interactive Systems (ifs) at the Vienna University of Technology (TU-Wien). He furthermore is president of AARIT, the Austrian Association for Research in IT and a Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute (HATII), University of Glasgow. His research interests cover the broad scope of digital libraries and information spaces, including specifically text and music information retrieval and organization, information visualization, as well as data analysis, neural computation and digital preservation.
  • Stefan Biffl
    is associate professor of software engineering at the Institute of Software Technology and Interactive Systems, Vienna University of Technology. His research interests include Value-based Software Engineering, Empirical Software Engineering, Software quality management and Software Engineering Process Improvement. He is head of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for “Software Engineering Integration for Flexible Automation“. In the CD laboratory 7+ researchers are planned to work for up to 7 years on application-oriented basic research for (software+) engineering environment integration for industry partners in the automation engineering domain.
