[The first iteration of the Digital Preservation Business Case Toolkit, from SPRUCE, is now available.|]
*SPRUCE* is aiming to foster a vibrant and self-supporting community of digital preservation practitioners and developers via a mixture of online interaction and face to face events based on the successful AQuA Project mashups (see [AQuA Wiki||display/AQuA/Home] for more information). The events will provide support and technical expertise to address specific digital preservation challenges. The best work from event attendees will secure funding awards to further develop the activity and embed it within business as usual processes at the home institution. £60k is available for these awards and will be allocated during the 2 year life of the SPRUCE project.

*SPRUCE* will build on the experience of these activities in order to develop a strong business case for digital preservation, with the aim of supporting and embedding good DP practice beyond the life of the project.
