Piql Keeps Data Alive
Piql, a Norwegian technology company received nearly EUR 2 million in funding from Horizon 2020 to reach their goal of reshaping digital data preservation. It is a fantastic achievement and probably one of the only SMEs that have accomplished to get grants from three major EU funding programmes: SME Instrument Phase 2, Eurostars-2 and Fast Track to Innovation.
The company 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. By combining innovative research with well-proven technology, Piql has developed a self-documented OAIS (Open Archival Information System) compliant solution for digital preservation.
”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.”
