The study aims to indicate digital tools and ICT infrastructure to improve the management, promotion and development of our cultural heritage, taking into account both the requirements of the Digital Single Market (DIgital Single Market) and the institutional and regulatory landscape governing cultural policy in our country to our monuments to come closer to society and the economy and to contribute to economic growth and to the development of the country’s cognitive capital.

In collaboration with innovation experts of the sectors of cultural management, digital technology, tourism, financial tools and policy-making and in consultation with stakeholders such as the Ministry of Culture, ICOM, APR, EOT, SETE, FOSS, HAMAC, Universities, Research Centers and Local Authorities, the following works have been completed:

  • recording key trends that prevail at the moment in the European Digital Policy area
  • recording the broader digital environment in Culture at global and European level and to level of principles and best practices
  • surveying existing institutional / legal framework
  • evaluation / assessment of past efforts implementing digital activities in Culture
  • charting policies and related funding opportunities in the current programming period, in relation to the Information and Communication Technologies

While in progress are:
