Digital Preservation of Knowledge

The EU has invested some €9m in the CASPAR project to preserve digital legacy data. This will help safeguard knowledge from being technologically outdated and eventually lost. The €15m CASPAR software will rescue old information from public sources. More info on this news here.

What is more, the CASPAR software is Open Source and can be used by anyone. This means that potentially much more digital heritage and knowledge can be saved. A good move!
