DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE) fosters collaboration and synergies between many existing national initiatives across the European Research Area. DPE addresses the need to improve coordination, cooperation and consistency in current activities to secure effective preservation of digital materials. DPE's project partners lead work to:

  • raise the profile of digital preservation;
  • promote the ability of Member States acting together to add value to digital preservation activities across Europe;
  • use cross-sectoral cooperation to avoid redundancy and duplication of effort;
  • ensure auditable and certificated standards for digital preservation processes are selected and introduced;
  • facilitate skills development through training packages;
  • enable relevant research coordination and exchange;
  • develop and promote a research agenda roadmap; and
  • help both citizens and specialist professionals recognise the central role that digital preservation plays in their lives and work.

 DPE's success will help to secure a shared knowledge base of the processes, synergy of activity, systems and techniques needed for the long-term management of digital material.
