E-ARK CSP will build on and consolidate the results of the eArchiving Building Block, which was established as part of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The project will build on the results of eArk4All and eArk3 grant projects as well as on the eArk specifications for digital archiving and preservation. The main tasks will include specifications maintenance and development, validation and conformance testing, outreach and training. The project will also provide support to the generic services projects on eArchiving and ensure the maintenance of the tools used by the European entities that have already been onboarded like OP or DG TAXUD. The overarching aim is deployment: reach wider to further domains and extend the take-up of eArchiving services by both public and private entities. All the activities will be carried out with a view to achieve standardisation and integration of selected cross border interoperable digital services. Moreover, the solutions should be compliant with all Member States and EC legislation and recommendations.
