A key objective of DRI is to build strong international links with experts in the development of national trusted digital repositories to ensure that the DRI is developed in line with international best practice and is informed of continuing developments in this field.  To ensure this, an International Advisory Group has been established. The group is comprised of 8 international experts with a breadth of experience covering different aspects of trusted digital repositories for the Humanities and Social Sciences. The International Advisory Group will meet on an annual basis to make a critical examination of the project work and provide technical and strategic oversight, guidance and feedback to DRI.
