UNESCO PERSIST project

The UNESCO PERSIST project (Platform to Enhance the Sustainability of the Information Society Transglobally) aims to enhance the sustainability of the information society by assisting institutions to preserve and to provide access to digital heritage. To achieve this, PERSIST seeks to secure important mechanisms of good governance and the right of access to knowledge and information.

PERSIST has identified governments, heritage institutions, and the IT-industry as the three main stakeholders in the project. PERSIST will establish a platform to support dialogue and cooperation among the three main stakeholders, and to create practical solutions in the area of sustainable digital preservation. Additionally, academia will be an important partner in PERSIST as researchers have a supporting role in assessing the quality of the dialogue and cooperation.
