Our guideline will be primarily for collection curators/ researchers, collection managers, collections directors and local IT staff at European NHMs to inform them about the topic "Archiving" (a) as a basic infrastructure service to be organised by their own local organisations, e.g. together with their national government, (b) as IT service provided by local, national or European IT infrastructure providers like CINES, Zenodo and in future EOSC and (c) as service offered - to a certain degree - by domain-specific consortia like DISSCo. (b) and (c) is for archiving information packages (digital objects) as far as provided under open access licences?

The dinner in the Old Town 11 Feb., 19.00

We will have to split into two groups.

The restaurants are close, offering the unified menu with a guarantee of 20 EUR price, including a coffee/tea. Everyone willing to join is kindly asked to make a choice of the options given below BEFORE the Monday Plenary Session (we have to pass the order to the restaurant).

https://www.restauracjastolica.com ("The Capital" Restaurant, Stolica)

https://www.gospodakwiatypolskie.com ("Polish Flowers" Inn)

In order to not to exceed the capacity of the restaurants, we will divide into a group of WG1, WG2 and WG3 who will go to restaurant Gospoda Kwiaty Polskie and a group of WG4, WG5, WG6 who will go to restaurant Stolica. Both restaurants serve the same options and are very near to each other. The selection that you made in the registration form will cost a total amount of € 20.

The suggestion is for people to take the buses 128 or 175 and go to the end stop Plac Piłsudskiego.

Then go by foot to the restaurants: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1CZVBrU8_w6P6iNndJA0SEdf2Nd3mkUll&usp=sharing

Otherwise you will have to change lines and reach the bus stop Plac Zamkowy (castle square) or the bus stop Kapitulna.

For those using smart apps there is a great app called "jakdojade" (and a website https://jakdojade.pl) covering the whole public transport in Warsaw.

We should be there at 19.00.


The Workshop will be held in Warsaw, February 10th to 12th 2020.

For overview see Mobilise meeting in Warsaw.

It will be hosted by the Faculty of Biology, University of Warsaw (CNBCh-UW).
