The DPC Supporter program provides an environment where solution providers and members can collaborate. The program’s events and activities offer opportunities for greater insight into the requirements of members. The new DPC Supporter program of activities for 2020 delivers exciting opportunities, activities and benefits designed to enable a positive dialogue between members and solution providers on ‘neutral’ ground.

All funds raised by the DPC Supporter Program will be used in first instance to support grants to members for training and workforce development as well as the Annual Student conference, to subsidize training workshops or to sponsor DPC membership for charities and not-for-profits.

Any organization which provides products or services to the digital preservation community may apply for DPC Supporter status and in return will be invited to join and extend the activities of the Coalition. Supporters also enjoy early access to draft outlines of DPC Technology Watch Reports and other published output, an invitation to an annual trade fair and horizon scanning meeting with DPC members, as well as the opportunity to showcase products and services through webinars and relevant briefing days.

The DPC enables members to deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services through advocacy, community engagement, workforce development, capacity-building, good practice and good governance.
