2.805.000 Euros Funding for Future Memory Standards!

The PREFORMA call for tender has been published on June 12th, 2014. Proposal submission deadline: August 12th, 2014. Budget: 2.805.000 EUR.


PREFORMA aims to establish a set of tools and procedures for gaining full control over the technical properties of digital content intended for long-term preservation by memory institutions and to establish a long-term sustainable ecosystem around the developed tools with a variety of stakeholder groups, among which developers, digital preservationists and standardisation bodies.


The main objective of the pre-commercial-procurement is the development and deployment of an open source, software licensed, reference implementation for file format standards aimed at any memory institution (or other organisation with a preservation task) wishing to check conformance with a specific standard. This reference implementation will consist of a set of modular tools, which will be tested against the implementation of specifications of standards relevant to the PREFORMA project and used by the European memory institutions to preserve their data objects.
