About CEF eArchiving
Financed by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), the purpose of the CEF eArchiving Building Block is to promote the uptake and accelerate the use of eArchiving specifications amongst both public and private entities established in the EU. The benefits to both users and the wider economy of adopting eArchiving include:
- Flexibility: supports scaling of digital archival systems from small to very large
- Standardisation: enables information assets to be transmitted, preserved and re-used across borders as well as time
- Efficiency: accelerates the delivery time of a working digital archive, while controlling costs
- Transparency: ensures a high level of confidence among all participants in the information value chain
- Risk management: reduces risks in information assurance
To do so, CEF eArchiving makes the following services available:
About the CEF building blocks
The CEF building blocks provide basic services which can be reused to enable more complex digital public services offered to citizens, businesses and public administration. They provide reusable tools and services helping to underpin the Digital Single Market, that aims to remove digital regulatory barriers, contributing as much as EUR 415 billion per year to the European economy. The CEF Digital Portal is the home of the CEF building blocks (Big Data Test Infrastructure, Blockchain, Context Broker, eArchiving, eID, eDelivery, eInvoicing, eSignature, eTranslation and Once Only Principle). It is the one-stop-shop for information about the building blocks.
