Funded by the European Commission, ‘Investing in Opportunity’ is a free conference but places are limited so booking is essential to avoid disappointment.
Brought to you by the 4C project (Collaboration to Clarify the Costs of Curation) and the DPC (Digital Preservation Coalition), the conference will compare the strategic economic aspirations of funders and policy makers against the practical experience of digital preservation, including perspectives from practitioners, vendors and users of digital preservation services. It will identify emerging best practice and will provide a forum for needs and practical requirements to be articulated.
Participants will be invited to review key 4C Project deliverables, considering the implications of these resources and providing the opportunity to shape these to suit community needs before they are submitted to the European Commission. In particular participants will have a final chance to influence the soon to be published Digital Curation Roadmap.
