APARSEN is a Network of Excellence that brings together an extremely diverse set of practitioner organisations and researchers in order to bring coherence, cohesion and continuity to research into barriers to the long-term accessibility and usability of digital information and data, exploiting our diversity by building a long-lived Virtual Centre of Digital Preservation Excellence.

The objective of this project may be simply stated, namely to look across the excellent work in digital preservation which is carried out in Europe and to try to bring it together under a common vision. The success of the project will be seen in the subsequent coherence and general direction of travel of research in digital preservation, with an agreed way of evaluating it and the existence of an internationally recognised Virtual Centre of Excellence.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013 – ICT-2009.4.1 : Digital Libraries and Digital Preservation– under grant agreement No 269977.
