ARCHIVER Pilot End-Phase Event

ARCHIVER Pilot End-Phase Event


Currently, there is no large-scale production usage of commercial data preservation services by the public research sector. ARCHIVER is a unique initiative in the context of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) that over a three-year pre-commercial procurement process developed innovative services for Long Term Digital Preservation of scientific datasets. R&D was performed competitively by commercial suppliers, over 3 phases, selecting pilot services led by Arkivum and LIBNOVA, for scientific data archiving and preservation. The R&D was driven by a diverse range of stakeholders including CERN, operating the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, DESY (the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, in Germany), the EMBL-EBI (European Bioinformatics Institute, in Cambridge), and PIC (Port d’Informació Científica, near Barcelona), contributing high-value datasets associated to the EOSC

The work accomplished in ARCHIVER is a game-changer for the approach taken to long-term research data management both from a mindset and technological perspective, i.e. what data do researchers retain, how to keep intellectual control of it and what data stewards must do to ensure long-term value can be realised from it.  The ARCHIVER selected companies are promoting solutions that are environmentally sustainable, providing the means to analyse and reduce the carbon footprint as an aid towards carbon neutrality.

A key component of sustainability is to ensure the innovation developed during the project has wide exposure to potential procurers within the European research community and other business sectors. To achieve this, the project has started an onboarding process for the resulting services to be available for Early Adopters. Making ARCHIVER services available through the EOSC marketplace, will give the possibility to researchers and procuring organisations to have sustainable access to these services, being able to trial them, evaluate their functionality and purchase them with a clear costing model.

The ARCHIVER effort resulted in services that are immediately usable by the public research sector in Europe. This will immediately expose the novel service offerings, relevant for at least 18 pan-European infrastructures to the estimated 1.7 million European researchers and 70 million professionals in science and technology, public and private sectors combined, that are expected to make use of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

The Pilot End-Phase Event will guide ARCHIVER stakeholders at large throught the services developed and their exploitation potential by the research community in EOSC. The event is open to policy makers, repository managers, researchers and Early Adopters willing to know more about the ARCHIVER model and the technical solutions implemented.

The event will take place on Monday 13 June 2022 (09.00 am to 11.00 am CEST)

Our role

While leading the communication and outreach campaign of the ARCHIVER project, Trust-IT responds to the following needs:

  • Raise awareness about the ARCHIVER project
  • Engage Early Adopters, accessing the R&D results and testing the services deployed in the ARCHIVER project.
  • Disseminate the results of the pilot phase and stimulate the uptake of the solutions developed.

Onboarding your target communities to ensure uptake of research solutions requires a structured approach, deep analytical skills and the design and implementation of communication and engagement plans made up of a mix of techniques and tools.

If you need to identify and build the perfect audience for your research activity and boost your community, contact us, we’ll be happy to help.
