17 August 2022 | 6:30am - 7:30am UTC Online | Zoom

This online members-only event will be held on the 17th of August from 6:30am to 7:30am UTC (click for local time).


The DPC’s Rapid Assessment Model is a maturity modelling tool for digital preservation. With the concept of continuous improvement at its heart, it is considered to be of most value when used regularly to check in on progress and adjust targets. The DPC therefore encourages members to carry out a self-assessment using DPC RAM on an annual basis, and members are invited to share their results with the DPC. Using these results, the DPC can better understand its members and the challenges that they face.

This short and informal event provides an opportunity to hear from the DPC about the latest RAM results from members. Summary results from this year’s RAM assessments will be shared (fully anonymized of course) and members will be invited to discuss how they might use this benchmarking information and the maturity model going forward.
