The international study group on data preservation in high energy physics, DPHEP, achieved a milestone in 2012 with the publication of its eagerly anticipated large scale report, which contains a description of data preservation activities from all major high energy physics collider-based experiments and laboratories. A central message of the report is that data preservation in HEP is not possible without long term investment in not only hardware but also human resources, and with this in mind DPHEP will evolve to a new collaboration structure in 2013. The DPHEP study group and the major conclusions from the report will be presented as well as an outline of the future working directions of the new collaboration.
