Contribute to the DSpace Development Fund

The newly established DSpace Development Fund supports the development of new features prioritized by DSpace Governance. For a list of planned features see the fund wiki page.

Registered DSpace Service Providers have made an investment in our open technologies and a commitment to work cooperatively with DSpace to best serve the community of users.

The new Service Provider Program has three tiers: Silver, Gold and Platinum

Program Entry Fee*




*The Program Entry Fee is due at the beginning of each Term and it is deducted from the total amount due by the RSP at the end of each yearly term. 

In each category, a Service Provider could also become Certified after contributing a certain amount of hours to supporting the technical community of DSpace. Certified Providers participate in Expression of Interest calls for DSpace development coordinated by the DSpace Governance. Any Provider can apply for certification after providing at least 100 hours of technical contribution (tech contribution include: code development, bug fixing and code reviews).

There are different activities that can be provided by the Service Provider such as “Hours of Contributions” to the program and causing institutions to join Program membership, which is vitally important to the sustainability and growth of any community-led Program. More information about the Service Provider Program and how to get involved can be found on the Service Provider Program WIKI page.
