Brief description

ARCHIVER - Archiving and Preservation for Research Environments - aims at introducing significant improvements in the area of archiving and digital preservation services, supporting the IT requirements of European scientists and providing end-to-end archival and preservation services in the context of scientific research projects. It addresses the data management issues of a group of procuring organizations, called “the Buyers’ Group”, allowing each research group to retain total stewardship of their data whilst leveraging best practices, standards and economies of scale. It does so via a Pre-Commercial Procurement process, where (public and private) contractors, grouped in consortia, are selected through an open tender process to perform R&D to develop data archiving and preservation cloud based services complementing the current on-premise services of the procuring organizations.
