  • Europe’s cultural treasures online: opportunities ahead

    6 Oct 14


    The European Commission today publishes two reports to coincide with an international conference that is part of the Italian Presidency of the EU, urging cultural institutions in Europe put more cultural heritage online with government support.

    One report looks at how to digitise, make accessible and preserve culture online, the second report explains how our film heritage can be rescued from rotting cans. Digitised cultural material is a great common and free resource for developing cultural and educational content, documentaries, tourism applications, games, animations and design tools. This can help creative industries to grow beyond their current share of 4% of EU’s GDP.
