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.
The OPF's mission is to ensure that its members around the world are able to meet their digital preservation challenges with a solution that is widely adopted and actively being practiced by national heritage organisations and beyond.
The OPF believes that establishing digital preservation practice requires an open community that actively shares best practice and is able to apply group learning.
OPF founders foresee that making tools available under an open source licence where and when possible will stimulate the adoption of the digital preservation practice.
OPF solutions are available to all organisations and OPF foresees that hundreds of organisations will make use of them.
