What they say about us

  • Although paradoxical, Internet needs its own archaeologists. And PADICAT has built in Catalonia a strong "excavation" with the layers of these twenty years on Internet. That's a solid service to Catalan culture and to our country.

    Vicent Partal, director of Vilaweb
  • When the study of computer code has academic value, digital archeology will be a science and universities will offer classes on digital evolution and conservation. Meanwhile, PADICAT is the closest thing we have to travel back in time to enjoy the digital heritage of Catalonia.
