  and who want to promote awareness, share knowledge and drive the industry forward.  
  Members range from the largest graphic companies to smaller printers, copy shops,  
  in-house printshops, graphic schools and suppliers and other interested parties.  

Packbridge - Logo

  International cluster organisation based in Sweden for the packaging industry.  
  Packbridge, formed in 2010, is are a growing network for the industry and  
  all its stakeholders - customers, suppliers, researchers and innovators.

  connects industry with academia, research with commercial application,  
  and - perhaps most - people with people.  


  The Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG)  
  is dedicated to advancing the practice of digital preservation and archiving.  
  It brings together practitioners, industry experts and researchers to  
  share experience in a vendor-neutral forum on how to put preservation  
  and archiving into practice, including:  

  • Guidelines, best practice, assessment/audit criteria and standards

  • Architectures, designs, workflows and deployments.

  • Tools, systems and services.

  • Trends, directions and emerging products/solutions

  • Case studies, reviews and practical findings.

  • Comparisons and choices such as community or proprietary,
    onsite or hosted, customized or standardized solutions.

  As a forum, PASIG provides its participants three main benefits:  

  • Connecting practitioners with each other to share
    information, designs, and best practices.

  • Connecting practitioners and vendors, to both inform
    market & product development, and help practitioners make
    the most of the best systems, components and expertise
    that technology and service companies can offer.

  • Advancing the state of understanding, knowledge and practice of
    digital preservation and archiving among stakeholders worldwide,
    regardless of size, industry, content or relative maturity.

  The community is above all focused on the practical aspects of digital preservation;  
  while it discusses standards, it is not a standards-setting organization.  
  Theory, research and policy discussions are also relevant, to the degree that  
  they have a direct and tangible impact on current digital preservation practice.  
  PASIG is a place to share practical experiences, successes, pain points, and,  
  increasingly, a forum for fostering coordination and collaboration to enable  
  the most effective use of our resources.  
  To cross-pollinate global ideas and practice, PASIG events typically alternate  
  between eastern and western hemispheres  
  and are held roughly every 12 months at volunteer host institutions.
