nestor is a cooperation association including partners from different fields, but all connected in some way with the subject of “digital preservation”.
nestor was set up as a BMBF (German Federal Ministry for Education and Research) sponsored project (2003-2009) and has been continued on an independent basis by the former project partners together with other organisations since July 2009.
As a network it brings together a disparate array of institutions affected by digital preservation, experts and active project participants, all committed to the exchange of information, the distribution of tasks, the development of standards and the exploitation of synergy effects etc.
nestor’s work is not, however, restricted to Germany-based activities. The partners maintain close links with corresponding initiatives in other countries and are actively involved in European and international initiatives and projects.
