    • Research (digital preservation, eInfrastructures)
  • The new Renaissance - Comité de Sages -
    • Stresses the economic aspects next to the cultural aspects
    • The vision: ‘Access’ is the central concept
    • Digitisation is more than a technical option, it is a moral obligation
    • Main responsibilities for digitising and preserving our cultural heritage should be assumed by the public sector
  • Funding issues
    • The issue
    • A rough estimate of the costs of digitising the whole European cultural heritage is 100 bn euros.
    • Mass-digitisation is an industrial process, and hence very susceptible to efficiency gains due to scale.
    • Digitisation represents an opportunity for new business models and growth
    • Key recommendations :
    • The public sector has the primary responsibility for funding digitisation. Member States have to step up their investments. The current crisis cannot be ignored, but cannot be a reason for not acting
    • At the same time, involvement of private partners should be encouraged
    • MS should promote ways to turn digitisation into new development opportunities for European firms
  • Collaborative research on Digital Preservation – FP 7
    • Funded since 2005, 7 new projects started in 2011 (total EU funding 43 mio €)
    • New call – ICT Work programme 2011-2012: open 18 Jan 2012 – 17 July 2012 (30 mio €)
    • Areas covered:

    • Research and innovation together
    • Green paper “Towards a Common Strategic Framework for EU Research and Innovation Funding”
