The SupAnn project is intended to define and maintain a shared coherency in the implementation of education and research directories. In education and research institutions, directories are the technical building blocks that are used as the interface between the multiple data sources and the consumer applications or services. Its role explains institutions’ need and will to have a reliable framework to facilitate the implementation of their directories and guarantee the interoperability of exchanges between them.
RENATER has been steering the project since 2016. The active participation of the Universities of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, Nantes (soon to be Nantes Université in 2022), and Lorraine and the reflections conducted by the members of the work group make it possible to publish regular recommendations.
