- The Solutions
On 29 January 2020 ARCHIVER launched its Request for Tender with the purpose to award several Framework Agreements and work orders for the provision of R&D for hybrid end-to-end archival and preservation services that meet the innovation challenges of European Research communities, in the context of the European Open Science Cloud.
The tender was closed on 28 April 2020 and 15 R&D bids were submitted, with consortia that included 43 companies and organisations. The best bids have been selected and will start the first phase of the ARCHIVER R&D (Solution Design) in June 2020.
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and the and consequent movement restrictions imposed in several countries, the event has been organised as a webinar, virtually hosted by Port d’Informació Científica (PIC), a member of the Buyers Group of the ARCHIVER consortium.
