PREFORMA Innovation Workshop

Date: 7 March 2017

Venue: Botanical Garden, Via Orto Botanico 15, Padua (Italy),

Aim of the workshop is to highlight the importance of standardisation and file format validation for the long term preservation of digtal cultural content, present the open source conformance checkers developed in the project and the business models that can be built around them, and involve memory institutions outside the PREFORMA consortium in testing, using and further developing the software.

The event will include:

- keynote speeches by international experts in digital preservation and open source business modelling;

- a panel to reflect on how to measure the impact of a project and to ensure its sustainability;

- live demonstrations of the software developed by the three suppliers (the veraPDF consortium, Easy Innova, MediaArea);

- an informal networking event where attendees can share experiences, meet the PREFORMA developers and learn more about the tools.

The day before the workshop, on 6 March 2017, the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padua will host the fourth edition of the Networking Session for EC projects in the cultural heritage field, a successful initiative launched in the framework of the RICHES project and continued under the auspices of Europeana Space and PREFORMA.
