NCDD Nationale Coalitie Digitale Duurzaamheid
The NCDD was founded in 2008 by a group of Dutch public organisations which count the management of digital data collections among their primary tasks. The NCDD’s aim is to collaboratively create a cross-domain organisational and technical infrastructure guaranteeing the long-term usability of digital files.
The NCDD has a dual role. Firstly, it is a platform for cross-domain knowledge-sharing and awareness-building regarding the long-term accessibility of digital information. Secondly, the NCDD conducts collaborative projects in the field of sustained access. These projects form the building blocks of a shared infrastructure for sustained access in the Netherlands, and they are executed by teams of experts from NCDD partner organisations. In 2015 and 2016, these activities are performed as part of the Digital Heritage Network’s work programme.
