> Preservation of digital information is a major challenge for many
> organizations.  The long-term management, access and preservation of
> this information presents a number of serious risks and unresolved
> problems.  The international scientific research community must  
> rise to
> this challenge if it is to take full advantage of the data and
> information resources available for research today and in the future.
> There is a growing realisation that the answer to these challenges  
> calls
> for coordinated approaches on both national and international level.
> The PARSE.Insight project, partly funded by the European Commission,
> aims to produce a roadmap for development of an infrastructure for
> digital preservation. The first step is to conduct a wide-ranging
> survey of many stakeholders, which we are carrying out in  
> conjunction with
> the DCC.
> Your particular views and experiences are of great value in helping  
> to shape
> the roadmap, and we would be very grateful if you would take a few  
> minutes
> to complete the survey, which may be accessed at
> https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=cVxlodNKyrnc0Lvnh_2bkUAw_3d_3d
> All responses to this survey will be aggregated for analysis and made
> anonymous. The findings will be used to help inform and shape the  
> funding
> landscape for digital preservation activity throughout Europe. We  
> encourage
> you to make your views known and would be grateful if you would  
> forward
> details about this survey on to any colleagues who may be  
> interested in
> contributing.
