This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme under grant agreement no 619568
The main objective of the pre-commercial-procurement (PCP) launched by PREFORMA is the development and deployment of an open source, software licensed, reference implementation for file format standards for use by any memory institution (or other organisation with a preservation task) wishing to check conformance with a specific standard.
On April 4th, 2014, PREFORMA organised an Information Day event in Brussels to present the call for tender, which will be launched as part of the PCP.
The event, hosted by the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA), was successfully attended by representatives of SMEs, research centres, universities and enterpreneurs coming from all over Europe to discuss the PREFORMA call for tender.
