The premise of DCH-RP is a vision shared among the partners that is to implement in the next two decades a federated infrastructure dedicated to support the application of open science in the arts and the humanities.

The following three aspects are of extreme importance for the achievement of the DCH-RP vision:

  1. the availability of technology, services and resources;
  2. the innovation of the internal workflow of the organisations operating in the Digital Cultural Heritage sector (DCH);
  3. the policy support to the implementation of the federated infrastructure.

The changes that the digital word is producing on the traditional professional practices are enormous and among them there is a new concept of preservation that is necessary to develop. This is particularly true in the digital cultural heritage sector.

This handbook is aiming to provide an overview of the problems connected with the digital preservation of cultural heritage data and to illustrate which are the main missing parts to enable the sector to address these issues. The DCH-RP Roadmap will then offer a map to move towards the concept of open science in the arts and humanities.
