Funds for: Archiving wider, cross-border adoption of e-Archiving solutions
Main beneficiaries: international organisations, Joint Undertakings

Priorities and funded actions:

* Achieve wider, cross-border adoption of eArchiving solutions;
* Complement and improve the existing technical specifications and compliant software and to create best practice guidelines for data owners;
* Develop additional specifications and cross-border access services for a broader range of application areas (e.g. administrations, businesses, healthcare, environment, finance, safety-critical systems etc.) as well as at extending the geographical spread

* Reduce the cost of implementing and maintaining eArchiving solutions (e.g. economies of scale), and higher efficiency;
* Facilitate exchange data with organisations or individuals (which will help meet the data portability requirements in the General Data Protection Regulation);
* Develop market opportunities and increase competitiveness for IT providers, thanks to easier archival data exchange across borders;
* Increase cross-border availability of commercial eArchiving services for the public and private sectors alike;
* Create new innovative services based on archived digital data;
* Enhance training and employment opportunities for staff, thanks to the use of a common system;
* Improve long-term storage and availability of public and private sector data;
* Improve eArchiving capability and public access to archived digital records

Among financed actions
* Technical activities such as the stabilisation, harmonisation and extension of the existing eArchiving specifications and compliant software, supporting all stages of the document lifecycle;
* Development and operation of a conformance testing service;
* Support to end users, including through an IT helpdesk;
* Training for end users, both specific to eArchiving tools and generally on digital preservation and electronic archiving as needed;
* Stakeholder engagement and monitoring activities for the dissemination and promotion of eArchiving as well as monitoring the uptake with regard to functionality and geographical spread;
