  5. 5. SCAPE SCAPE: Project OverviewSCAPE will enhance the state of the art in digital preservation inthree ways:• Infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions• A framework for automated, quality-assured preservation Takeup workflows Stakeholders• Integration of these components with policy-based automated Communities Dissemination preservation planning and watch Training Activities SustainabilitySCAPE results will be validated in three large-scale testbeds: Testbeds• Digital Repositories Corpora Integration• Web Content Benchmarking Validation• Research Data Sets Cross-project ActivitiesThe SCAPE Consortium brings together a Project Management Technical Coordination Platformbroad spectrum of expertise from Research Roadmap Automation• Memory institutions Workflows Parallelization Preservation Planning and Watch• Data centres Virtualization Components Quality Assurance• Research labs Institutional Policies Scalable Components Technical Watch Automation-ready• Universities Automated Planning Tools• Industrial firms 5
  6. 6. SCAPE SCAlable Preservation Environments• SCAPE addresses critical challenges that have been identified by the Commission and key stakeholders• SCAPE results will enable organisations • to keep pace with the rapid growth of digital collections by providing a new highly scalable architecture and reducing the need for human intervention • to help ensure that their preservation actions have been effective • to fulfill their increasing regulatory obligations • to reduce the risks to their digital material• If successful, SCAPE will • transform the manner in which content holders safeguard their digital content • increase confidence in the long-term accessibility and integrity of their collections, at the European, national, and organisational levels • have a profound impact on the way that digital repositories are designed and built in order to enable scalable preservation services 6
