In addition he has broad experience in e-Science. He is a member of the programme committee of the PV series of conferences which focuses on preservation and adding value to scientific and technical data and several other conference series. As chair of the panel which produced the OAIS Reference Model (ISO 14721), ‘now adopted as the "de facto" standard for building digital archives’[1], he made fundamental contributions to OAIS and continues to contribute to the follow-on standards. Dr Giaretta leads the group which produced the ISO standard for audit and certification of digital repositories, and setting up the certification organisations. In 2003 he was awarded an MBE for services to Space Science. In 2005 he co-organised the Warwick workshop “Digital Curation and Preservation: Defining the research agenda for the next decade” which has proved to be very influential in the UK and internationally. More recently he was rapporteur for the EU High Level Group on Scientific Data whose report "Riding the Wave" put forward a vision for 2030. Dr Giaretta was Associate Director for Development of the UK Digital Curation Centre. He then led a number of EU projects, closely linked to the APA, focussed on digital preservation. These included CASPAR which implemented much of the first APA research plan, addressing fundamental issues of digital preservation, producing infrastructure components and tools for preservation of all types of digitally encoded information together with evidence of their effectiveness. PARSE. Insight identified users’ views on the main threats to, and their attitudes towards, preservation. APARSEN brings together commercial and public organisations across Europe to come to a common vision for research in digital preservation. APARSEN will help the APA become a global centre of excellence in digital preservation. The SCIDIP-ES project begins in late 2011 and puts in place key infrastructure components, based on those prototyped by CASPAR, which will help organisations be more trustworthy as preservers of digitally encoded information.
