The ISTEX project is a vast program of acquisitions of scientific resources aimed at creating an international-standard digital library which can be accessed by all members of higher education and research institutions.
The project was launched in November 2012 and received 60 million Euros of public funding. The platform for the data involved will be hosted at Inist-CNRS.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Research initiated this innovative project which is led by CNRS, ABES, the Couperin Consortium and the University of Lorraine which represents the Conference of University Presidents.
