Piql Keeps Data Alive
By combining innovative research with well-proven technology, Piql has developed a self-documented OAIS (Open Archival Information System) compliant solution for digital preservation.
Piql received nearly EUR 2 million in funding from Horizon 2020 to reach their goal of reshaping digital data preservation. Moreover, Piql wants to upscale, pilot, and commercialise the disruptive and patented Piql System for ultra-secure storage and long-term preservation of digital and analogue data.
Lastly, the Phase 2 funding will be used to address and implement the findings of SME Phase 1 and therefore enable a rapid and successful commercialisation of Piql’s services.
Only 2% of the applicants are supported as the EU commission closely scrutinises the competitiveness and societal benefits of each project.
”We are proud to be among the top 2% of Europe’s innovation-driven businesses. We will make sure the funds are spent to the benefit of our clients. Nordic Innovators assisted us in the process with proposal writing and asked critical questions that made us sharpen our vision even further.”
Rune Bjerkestrand says, Founder and Managing Director of Piql
