In 2020, the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) released a call for eArchiving-related proposals under the Telecom Work Programme. The objective of this call (CEF-TC-2020-2: eArchiving) was to foster the adoption of eArchiving solutions and standards beyond National Archives, reaching out to other levels of public administration, public institutions, international bodies, software companies, small and medium enterprises, etc., and different domains, such as cultural heritage, etc. Four projects received funding under the call.
PROHUB (Protecting Oral Histories Using Blockchain) was a collaboration between AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology), NIOD (Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies) and Highbury R&D. It integrates blockchain technology with eArchiving solutions to protect oral history records containing sensitive information. Blockchain technology provides an additional layer which allows registering objects for access and handling license management.
