A well-known expert on the OAIS standard, Barbara has participated in European projects such as Planets, SCAPE and APARSEN, acting as project lead in several work packages. She also plays a key role in the Dutch Digital Heritage Network where she develops strategies to promote digital preservation and provides ongoing training.
To make data FAIR is difficult enough, but to keep them FAIR over the years will require digital preservation professionals who will collaboratively work on solutions. We will need repositories that not only know about the FAIR principles, but also will have implemented the TRUST principles.
