  • CINES offers an economical and secure solution
    • Meets the field of standards
    • Respecting the standard exchange protocol
    • Accredited by the Inter Service Archives France
  • Are concerned :
    • The science: issues of observations or calculationsEnluminure1
    • Legacy data: teaching, publications, etc.
    • Administrative data
  • The expertise of CINES based on:
    • A multidisciplinary team of specialists to the needs
    • Collaborations with key stakeholders: BNF, Archives de France, the National Archives, CNES,
    • The experience of a computer center in the exploitation of digital data
  • Achievements
    • Official National Centre for archiving electronic theses
    • Archiving SHS journals published by the portal PERSEE
    • Archive for Huma-Num TGE of Research Center for Oral Data Data for the CCSD publications deposited in HAL to their heritage collections of libraries, etc.
    • CINES is also involved EUDAT the European project to develop a European infrastructure for exchange and data retention.




CINES experience in the exploitation of IT environments and sharing its outstanding infrastructure can accommodate in its computer rooms critical servers national partners (Bibliographic Agency for Higher Education, INSERM, RENATER MOOC platform Digital University in France, …)
