Haplo was delighted to be part of the vibrant Open Repositories Conference in Hamburg.

The Open Repositories conference is the global meeting of ideas and people behind the world's most significant repositories. Haplo were delighted to be part of the Open Repositories conference held in Hamburg, Germany, 10-13 June 2019.

Haplo co-presented with Jenny Evans, Unviersity of Westminster, as part of the EuroCRIS presentations on why we think it's critical that a repository is an integral part of a Current Research Information System (CRIS.) Our slides from our presentations are available: , "The Repository is the CRIS, and the CRIS is the Repository" and "A staged path to fully integrated CRIS & Repository."

We were delighted to participate in a panel discussion on practice-based arts research with the University of Westmistner, Glasgow School of Art, and JISC.

And finally we were invited to participate in a panel discussion about the role of service providers in open source communities, giving us the opportunity to explain why we open sourced the Haplo Platform and Haplo Repository.

Haplo presented two Posters at the conference. Our poster on flexible metadata aimed to explain the most powerful aspect of the Haplo Repository - our flexible metadata model which enables Haplo to store all types of output in one repository.

Our poster co-presented with the University of Westminster, illustrated the process of engaging with researchers, and designing workflows to support librarians in creating a repository for all types of research and all types of output.
