Archiving and preservation for research environments

ARCHIVER Design Phase Kick-off Virtual Event

08 June 2020

Today, Monday 8 June, the selected consortia for the ARCHIVER design phase will be announced during a Public Award Ceremony starting at 14.00 CEST.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and the and consequent movement restrictions imposed in several countries, the event will be organised as a webinar, virtually hosted by Port d’Informació Científica (PIC), a member of the Buyers Group of the ARCHIVER consortium.

The Kick-off marks the beginning of the Solution Design Phase. The event is open to all interested stakeholders, we therefore kindly invite you to register by clicking on the link below.
