Services are developed in close collaboration with partner organisations to preserve their digital assets whilst other provisions include maintaining national digital preservation specifications, developing open-source software, maintaining hardware for preservation, and offering support for national organisations on various aspects of digital preservation.

“We believe that international collaboration is the way to successful digital preservation. Being part of the DPC, we look forward to benefitting from the experiences of all members and sharing our own national lessons-learned back to the community” explains Kimmo Koivunen, Development Manager for CSC. 

Chair of the DPC, Juan Bicarregui was delighted to welcome Kimmo and colleagues saying: “CSC have successfully established a model of collaboration on a national level, and I am sure we can all learn valuable lessons from their experiences. We look forward to working with the CSC team whose work will interest many of our members.”
