In the first half of 2009 , research will be conducted into media carriers and available transfer tools, legal issues will be examined and finally, knowledge will have been gathered from the current state-of-the-art being done in the emulation community.
By the end of 2009 , a deep understanding of existing emulation techniques and their applicability as strategies for digital preservation will have been developed. Also, user requirements analysis and design will have been formulated for creating flexible, user-friendly emulation services, media carriers and media transfer tools.
During 2010 , we expect to have a first prototype ready of emulation services and media transfer services. Each of these services will be tested and possible adjustments will be carried out.
During 2011 , the emulation services will be finalised and integrated into a complete emulation access platform.
