CIS-A2K/Events/Meeting with Wikimedia Deutschland on Wikibase & Wikidata collaboration
CIS-A2K is partnering with various libraries and museums for the last two years to enrich content on Wikimedia projects. The need for developing structured data and integration with other Wiki projects is identified by the organisations. Our most active partners like Pune Nagar Vachan Mandir, RIWATCH, Vigyan Ashram, Gokhale Institute etc. are eager to work with us on these projects. Three months back, on August 10, a preliminary meeting was held with Alan Ang, Partner Manager to discuss Wikibase collaborations in India.
CIS-A2K representative discussed the possibilities for collaboration with Wikimedia Deutschland members in the recent Wikimedia Summit. Taking the process further, a meeting was organised on 12 October 2022 with Alan to crystalise some Wikibase pilot projects with selected two partners. A representative from West Bengal User Group, Bodhisattwa also participated in the meeting. It was decided to formulate pilot project proposals in the next two months.
