The aim of the ETB project is to build a Web educational resource Metadata Networking infrastructure for schools in Europe.

The aim of the ETB project is to build a Web educational resource Metadata Networking infrastructure for schools in Europe, to link together existing national repositories, encourage new publication, and provide a reliable level of quality and structure.

Furthermore, the project aims to add value to these systems by an interoperable layer to help teachers and students locate resources Europe-wide through a Schoolnet Information Space with rules to facilitate location of relevant resources. The user wants access to all data repositories, whatever indexing method is used.

The user should only obtain all the most relevant resources for their own information needs. This rich information space can become a vast source of educational material classified according to subject and resource type for use by teachers in preparing lessons, and by students for reference and research, or guidelines and best practice.
