OPF Advisory Group (OAG)


The third OPF Advisory Group (OAG) will hold the 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Open Preservation Foundation on it’s first day. The event will take place on the 24th and 25th of May in downtown Helsinki at the Oodi, and is kindly hosted by CSC. Members will be able to attend both in person or virtually. 

The event will include updates about the development of our tools, special interest groups, and knowledge-sharing initiatives. This is also an opportunity for all members to have their say on our priorities and help to shape our work. We are excited to share our achievements and discuss our future plans with our members.

Per feedback request, this event will be member-driven. We will see multiple tool user demonstrations, and member presentations.

For our members, please see resources from our previous event.


Registration will be open soon via the members’ mailing list. Please keep an eye on your emails!
