The central focus of IDCC19 is to examine collaborations and partnerships in the field of digital curation and preservation. How do they develop and evolve across the professional, disciplinary, institutional, regional, national, and international levels ? And how are such collaborations supporting the advancement of digital curation and preservation practices ? The DCC is partnering with the University of Melbourne to take the IDCC to Australia in 2019 and this is a context where such collaborations and links with the wider international research data community are key.

With unparalleled data volumes, increasing costs and an ever-reducing funding pool, there is a strong imperative to partner and collaborate across domains, institutions and regions. Partnerships and collaborations are particularly evident in the higher-education research, public libraries and archives sectors. Individuals play a key role too and may see their work being adopted by other sectors or influencing how we address grand challenges.

The data stewardship role creates endless opportunities for preserving our past and capturing the present, while also shaping the future. But this has not been by accident. Digital curation is an elegant dance between a diverse array of protagonists, working together to create the extraordinary. Partnerships and collaborations are at the core of the curation dance between these diverse stakeholders.
