High Level Expert Group on Digital Libraries

The members of the High Level Expert Group to advise the EU Commission on digital libraries have been named. It includes

Prof Bertil Andersson - Chief Executive of the European Science Foundation

Mr Nikesh Arora - Vice President of European Operations, Google UK Ltd.

Dr Arne J├╝rgenBach - President of the Federation of European Publishers

Mr Emmanuel Hoog - President of the International Federation of Television Archives


Ms Lynne Brindley - Director of the British Library

as well as Brewster Kahle and notable others. Interesting to see Arora in there, as the French lobbied for this in the first place as a kind of EU anti-Google book project.
