Digifest14 - Expert Speaker Session

4C Project Co-ordinator Neil Grindley hosted an Expert Speaker Session at the 2014 Jisc Digital Festival in Birmingham on Tuesday 11th March.

The Expert Session will explain how the work of the 4C Project ‘Collaboration to Clarify the Costs of Curation,’ aims to improve the comparability of data across organisations, helping make efficiency gains that will ultimately help to either reduce costs or to improve organisational capacity to curate and preserve additional digital assets.

Some of the critical outputs to be produced within the final year of the project include the Curation Costs Exchange (CCEX), a Cost Concept Model, and the Economic Sustainability Reference Model (ESRM). The session will introduce and explain the impact these resources are expected to make, and how these resources will be made available to the digital curation community.

Having already created a sizeable registry of open information related to digital curation costs through its ‘Community Resources’ section of the project website, the 4C Project is an ‘open and social’ project, relying on input from stakeholders and practitioners to make sure the best resources are developed for their user community.
