KEEP (Keeping Emulation Environments Portable) is carried out by seven European partners under the 7th Framework and started in 2009. 

National Archief is not a project member of the KEEP project. However, we are closely involved in this effort to create a modular emulation framework through our work on emulation in the PLANETS project.

In KEEP the Dioiscuri emulator will be further developped. This emulator was developed jointly by Nationaal Archief and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (Royal Dutch Library). Both insitutions work together on emulation in PLANETS.

Within KEEP, project member Koninklijke Bibliotheek (Royal Dutch Library) will take on Dioscuri developement to include also 32-bit applications (Windows 95 and beyond).
