A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between DCH-RP and SUCCEED projects for the promotion and presentation of the respective results and for the organisation of joint events and other activities, focusing in particular on the definition of best practices for text digitisation and long term preservation.

 

DCH-RP logoDCH-RP (Digital Cultural Heritage Roadmap for Preservation) is a Coordination Action supported by the European Commission under the FP7 e-Infrastructure Capacities Programme, to design a Roadmap for the implementation of a federated e-Infrastructure for preservation of DCH content. The Roadmap will be supplemented by practical tools for decision makers and validated through a range of proofs of concept, where cultural institutions and e-Infrastructure providers work together on concrete experiments.

 

succeedSUCCEED (Support Action Centre of Competence in Digitisation) is a support action funded by the European Union that promotes the take up and validation of research results in mass digitisation with focus on the 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. The action will be implemented through the Impact Centre of Competence in Digitisation, an output of the IMPACT FP7-project which gathers and exposes digitisation tools and resources. The Centre will sustain the actions beyond Succeed since a legal entity will be substantiated and a roadmap for its long-term sustainability will be defined during the action.
