4C on Twitter
Welcome to the 4C Project
Collaboration to Clarify the Costs of Curation.
4C will help organisations across Europe to invest more effectively in digital curation and preservation. Research in digital preservation and curation has tended to emphasize the cost and complexity of the task in hand. 4C reminds us that the point of this investment is to realise a benefit, so our research must encompass related concepts such as ‘risk’, ‘value’, ‘quality’ and ‘sustainability’.
Organizations that understand this will be more able to effectively control and manage their digital assets over time, but they may also be able to create new cost-effective solutions and services for others.
The project was launched on the 1st February 2013 and these web pages will grow to include a great deal more content as we aim to fulfil our objectives.
