c3po is a software tool prototype, which uses FITS generated data of a digital collection as input and generates a profile of the content set in an automatic fashion. It provides a CLI tool for near data processing and a web application that enables easy and fast
analysis, filtering and export of the data. The generated profile can be used to integrate with other preservation planning tools, such as Plato or Scout.
The SCAPE project will enhance the state of the art of digital preservation in three ways:
by developing infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions; by providing a
framework for automated, quality-assured preservation workflows and by integrating these
components with a policy-based preservation planning and watch system.

Research on the requirements and issues of fully-automated archiving systems to be used in environments
where little professional know-how and awareness on digital preservation issues is available,
such as small institutions, SOHO and personal archiving settings. Development of a system that
hides the technical complexity of digital preservation challenges.
The Austrian Research Studio Digital Memory Engineering conducts industry-oriented research and development
