Succeed has signed with PREFORMA Consortium and DCH-RP project (Digital Cultural Heritage Roadmap for preservation) both Memorandum of Understanding in order to achieve a better cooperation.

In concrete terms, these cooperation seeks, among other things, to promote and present results and activities of the concerned projects in the respective websites, events and publication; to organize events as workshops; to implement clustering activities for the stimulation of dissemination and collaboration; to publish articles about the work and results in scientific journals and in sector specific online publications; and to fund raising/projects.


Succeed is a support action funded by the European Union. It promotes the take up and validation of research results in mass digitisation, with a focus on textual content. Succeed aims to improve the availability of tools and resources, fosters the transfer of knowledge, the creation of research consortia and explores the role of emerging business models, funding opportunities and public-private partnerships to improve large-scale text digitisation techniques. After the end of the Succeed project, the Impact Centre of Competence will continue with these MoUs.

pfo_logoPREFORMA (PREservation FORMAts for culture information/e-archives) is a new Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) project started on January 1st, 2014, and co-funded by the European Commission under its FP7-ICT Programme. The aim of the project is to address the challenge of implementing good quality standarised file formats for preserving data content in the long term. The main objective is to give heritage institutions full control of the process of the conformity tests of files to be ingested into archives.


DCH-RP will drive the dialogue among DCH institutions, e-Infrastructures, research and private organizations, to integrate their efforts into a common work. DCH-RP is a coordination action started in October 2012 and lasting 2 years.
