ARCHIVER – Sustainable Preservation of Scientific Data
About the session
The award winning ARCHIVER project (Archiving and Preservation for Research Environments) has spent over 3 years designing, prototyping and piloting innovative new services for the Long Term Digital Preservation (LTDP) of scientific datasets. During the project, multiple Data intensive organisations representing several research domains (CERN, DESY, PIC and EMBL-EBI) have worked closely and collaboratively with suppliers (Arkivum and LIBNOVA) on the research and development of new services and solutions for scientific data preservation relevant for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
This panel session will see the ARCHIVER participants discuss and share the experience and lessons learned during the project, its outcomes and benefits for research organisations both large and small.
Relevance for EOSC
The session is relevant because the panel will discuss the following topics:
- What were the main challenges ARCHIVER wanted to address and how were they overcome? Were they organisational, technological, economic or a mix of these?
- What are the three most important features of each of the ARCHIVER resulting solutions?
- Research data lives for longer than any vendor, system or technology. How do the ARCHIVER resulting LTDP services prevent vendor lock-in and encourage portability and interoperability, yet at the same time make it attractive for commercial services to participate? Are these in conflict?
- How can LTDP services support research data producers in aspects such as to preserve and re-run complete software environments, beyond the original software applications, ranging from the large scale through to the long tail, in the context of the EOSC?
- Brief overview of the project activities and objectives
- Discussion & reflections between panel members addressing the questions listed above.
- Q&A from the audience
