Operational solutions setting-up the principles for a common European distributed archiving
concept aiming at the creation of an interoperable network of archive centres possibly reusing
infrastructure of the different entities (as a single archive) in the long term. This would pave the
way to future cooperation programs starting from standardized and certified services (e.g. share of
data archives, archive transfer on demand or in case of a purge alert, coordination of re-processing
schemes, format adoption/conversion, etc.).
