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.
