Planets, Preservation and Long-term Access through Networked Services, was a four-year project co-funded by the European Union under the Sixth Framework Programme to address core digital preservation challenges. The primary goal for Planets was to build practical services and tools to help ensure long-term access to our digital cultural and scientific assets. Planets started on 1st June 2006 and finished in 2010. The Planets website makes available project documentations and deliverables so that these can be shared with the libraries, archives and digital preservation community.
The strong Planets consortium brought together expertise across Europe from national libraries and archives, leading research universities and technology companies.
The Open Planets Foundation (OPF) has been established to provide practical solutions and expertise in digital preservation, building on the research and development outputs of the Planets project.
