DPC Award for Collaboration and Cooperation  

So far, the year 2022, has been subjected to multiple portentous global events, including the Beijing Winter Olympics, the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a new Monarch following the unfortunate passing of Queen Elizabeth II, NASA’s announcement for an inhabitable space station to orbit the moon and ABBA’s plans for a revival world tour.  

For Arkivum, one moment of significance this year has been the 2022 Digital Preservation Awards. For which, we are delighted to announce that the ARCHIVER project was presented with the International Council on Archives (ICA) Award for Collaboration and Co-operation at the DPC 2022 Digital Preservation Awards in Glasgow.  

 This award comes after three years of hard work, focused on closing the gap between long-term data preservation requirements for large research datasets and readily available and accessible storage solutions available to the European scientific research community. Read more on our in-depth review of the ARCHIVER project including our contribution here. 

The Award for Collaboration and Cooperation celebrates ‘significant collaboration across institutional, professional, sectoral and geographical boundaries which have had a demonstrable and positive impact on digital preservation since the last prize round’.   

Amongst the category’s panel, the ARCHIVER project was recognised for its ‘important work in public-private partnership which could level the playing field for long-term digital preservation of research data’. 

We would like to congratulate all those involved within the project for their hard-work and dedication to making influential strides within the long-term data management community.
