ARCHIVER Pilot Phase Kick-off Event

The ARCHIVER project is pleased to invite you to its Pilot Phase Award Ceremony, will take place on Monday 29th of November at 14.30 CET as a virtual event.

Started in January 2019, ARCHIVER is a unique initiative currently running in the EOSC framework that is competitively procuring R&D services for archiving and digital preservation. The EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) emphasises the importance of advanced long-term preservation to allow reproducibility of research results and ARCHIVER is providing a substantial contribution to this vision.

The ARCHIVER tenderers were selected through an open and competitive procurement process. Between December 2020 and August 2021 three consortia worked on innovative, prototype solutions for Long-term data preservation, in close collaboration with CERN, EMBL-EBI, DESY and PIC. Many NRENs and research organisations – such as Jisc, SURF, the European Institute of Oncology (IEO), ARDC, the Stockholm University Library and others – already expressed their interest in the ARCHIVER solutions, which will be part of the EOSC Marketplace. The selection process for proceeding to the next phase is now over and the consortia selected to continue with the pilot phase will be officially announced on the public ceremony on 29th of November.
