Digitalia – From Data to Information Management

Digitalia, Research Center on Digital Information Management supports and advances the maintenance and preservation of digital information.

Merely obtaining data does not create value. Data must first be transformed into well-defined information, whose origins, features and meaning are known.

Our mission is to enhance the usability, use and availability of digital datasets. We also make sure that data is preservable and reliable.

Digitalia researches and applies particularly

• methods and tools for managing and using digital information
• methods and tools for digital preservation.

Expert in information management and long-term preservation

By means of intelligent and learning solutions, large amounts of data can be applied. One example is data produced in digital communication.

We enable better use and management of information. We also make sure information is preserved for a long time, while being usable and reliable.

We conduct migration research, i.e. advance in transferring digital information from obsolete media and repositories into novel ones.


Developing digital long-term preservation requires testing different preservation media, file formats and repositories.

Please contact us, when you need to develop the management of digital information!
