Increasing amounts of Europe's cultural and scientific heritage is being created or represented in digital form. The preservation and reuse of these digital assets forms both the cornerstone of future economic growth and development, and the foundation for the future of memory. Addressing the challenges posed by digital preservation poses a major obstacle to the creation of Europe as a dynamic and economically successful knowledge‐based society. Electronic Resource Preservation and Network (ERPANET), the European Commission's major activity under the fifth framework programme of funding, aims to help public and private sector institutions across Europe to improve their knowledge about digital curation and preservation and to enhance their practices.
