From Emilio Lorenzo, Arvo Consulting 

Tecnalia Research & Innovation Foundation, a technological applied-research centre with over 1500 employees, teamed up with Arvo Consulting, to build its Institutional Repository. The main objective was to expose and provide wider visibility to its multidisciplinary research results.

Highlights of the repository are the attractive design and suitability for mobile devices, featuring the look and feel of Tecnalia Foundation to achieve greater uniformity with the rest of the institutional web. Its structure is hidden to unauthenticated users, easing the repository search and browsing, without impeding the internal asignation of the contents to each of Tecnalia Business Units.

Besides defining the structure of groups and permissions, the workflows review and approval were configured to facilitate work processes, licensing systems via Creative Commons were configured and some special requirements of embargoes were implemented.

The connection with Active Directory allows the authentication of users belonging to the institution, and important to notice is the configuration of the processes required for compliance with OpenAIRE as well with Recolecta, the Spanish Research harvesting network.
