Funded by:  European Commission

Main contact:  Professor Seamus Ross

Start date:  2002

Subject area:

The European Commission funded ERPANET Project will establish an expandable European Consortium, which will make viable and visible information, best practice and skills development in the area of digital preservation of cultural heritage and scientific objects. ERPANET will bring together memory organisations (museums, libraries and archives), ICT and software industry, research institutions, government organisations (including local ones), entertainment and creative industries, and commercial sectors (including for example pharmaceuticals, petro-chemical, and financial). The dominant feature of ERPANET will be the provision of a virtual clearing-house and knowledge-base on state-of-the-art developments in digital preservation and the transfer of that expertise among individuals and institutions.
