1 EU-funded Digital Preservation Research APA 2014 Conference Brussels, 22 October 2014 Dr. Manuela Speiser European Commission DG CONNECT, unit "Creativity"

2 Rationale Organisations with a societal mandate, legal obligations or business interests in long-term preservation of digital material need reliable, customisable and affordable technical solutions new knowledge and skills in curatorial staff a legal framework that allows preservation actions (copying, migrating...) 1

3 EU activities Policy coordination Recommendation on Digitisation and Digital Preservation (2011) Research funding ICT programme under FP7 Legislation Revision of copyright law on the agenda 2

4 Recommendation on digitisation and online accessibility of cultural material and digital preservation Three recommendations for digital preservation: reinforce national strategies, update action plans implementing the strategies, and exchange information between Member States adapt the legal framework to allow for preservation actions such as copying improve legal deposit arrangements for digital content Progress in Member States is regularly monitored: 2014 reports published in October 3

5 Research funding ICT programme under FP7 ( ) 6 Calls for proposals (digital libraries; access to and preservation of cultural and scientific resources; e-infrastructures) 23 projects total funding of > € 100 mio. ca. 250 participating organisations: research institutes, memory organisations, IT providers… 4

6 5 Earlier projects (up to 2012)

7 Earlier projects (up to 2014) 6

8 Results so far: Advanced Technology Formal models to characterise digital objects Methods and tools to support preservation planning; quality control; workflows Increased automation and scalability Advanced tools for web archiving Emulation framework for obsolete media High degree of take-up of project results at partner institutions and beyond 7

9 Results so far: Services for end-users Open Preservation Foundation (OPF): community for sharing best practices and open source tools PrestoCentre: competence centre for preservation of digital audiovisual material APARSEN Virtual Centre of Excellence 8

10 Results so far: Consoldiated research Strengthened cooperation between stakeholders Solid body of expertise in the EU research community -contribution to standardisation -leadership in preservation of web and audio-visual resources, trusted repositories… Increasing participation of industry players as solution providers or problem owners => improved market potential for project outcomes Training material for professionals Increased awareness of legal aspects 9

11 Ongoing projects (up to 2018) 10

12 On-going projects Techniques and tools for recovering loss and for repairing damaged digital objects, and for preventing loss and damage of newly created resources Embedding reasoning and intelligence in the digital information life-cycle (considering evolving semantics, use contexts, and interpretations; identifying obsolete information) Coordination actions promoting the uptake of digital preservation research outcomes, outreach to new stakeholders; cost modelling; road mapping. 11

13 Expected impacts Reduced information loss Lower preservation costs and improved preservation capacity and competences in organisations dealing with digital preservation, including small archives Strengthened position of European service and technology providers (including SMEs) in the field of digital preservation Leading edge research in Europe strengthened through restructuring of the research landscape. 12

14 Best wishes for the APARSEN Centre of Excellence 13
