"Save the Ukranian Monuments” (SUM) Initiative

SUM-4CH is a joint initiative of several European institutions and research infrastructures: 4Ch competence centre, OPERAS, Centre for Contemporary and Digital History at the University of Luxembourg, Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center, ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, backed by European Open Science Cloud Association (EOSC-A).

We support Ukrainian cultural heritage institutions and organisations (but also the wider research community) with the back-up of their offline resources - we provide infrastructure, documentation, workflows, and support. We are currently backing up materials from organizations in Odessa and Lviv. So far we work via the internet but we are also prepared to send in portable hard drives, should the infrastructure deteriorate or on-site backup is needed.

If you have any questions or needs we could address please get in touch with us via sum-ch4@remove-this.ibl.waw.pl
