The mission of the Vietsch Foundation is to promote research and development of advanced Internet technology for scientific research and higher education.
The Vietsch Foundation fulfills its goals in two ways.
- It can contribute funding to specific research and development projects that demonstrate potential value to progress European and global research and education networking.
- Each year it awards a medal of honour to people who contributed to the development of a service, technology or approach that will be of lasting value to the research and education networking community and its users.
For EMREX the Vietsch Foundation grant will serve two objectives:
- Industrializing the EMREX registry and reviewing the ELMO standard
- Dissemination of EMREX services and building the EMREX brand
This will help EMREX to make a step-change towards a self-standing service which creates value to students and organizations in Europe and also globally.
