Roadmap

Follow our current, near-term and future plans.

Our roadmap helps us share what the Invenio community is working on next and the direction that we’re taking Invenio. The roadmap is meant to open a practical dialogue on the direction of Invenio, and the roadmap may be subject to change both on the near-term and future plans based on feedback.

Who is implementing the roadmap?

Invenio development is being led by CERN with contributions from institutions and individuals from all over the world.

Every 3 months, CERN runs one to two 2-weeks development sprints dedicated to above roadmap. Overall, this roughly amounts to 1 FTE (full-time equivalent) per year plus the Invenio Product Manager.

In addition, new modules/features, enhancements, security fixes, etc. are being developed every day by teams at CERN and elsewhere.
