  42. 42. ELMCIP IMPACTSAs  we  approach  the  end  of  the  ELMCIP  project,  we  can  tes)fy  that:  §  Europe  now  stands  on  equal  foo)ng  with  North  America  as  a  center  of  ac)vity  in   the  field  of  electronic  literature.  The  conferences  and  networking  ac)vity   emerging  from  the  ELMCIP  project  has  helped  to  ac)vate  a  dynamic  European   field  of  scholarly  and  crea)ve  prac)ce.  It  is  notable  that  next  year  (2013)  both  the   E-­‐Poetry  Fes)val  and  the  ELO  conference  will  be  hosted  in  Europe,  in  London  and   Paris,  respec)vely.  §  We  have  learned  and  published  a  great  deal  about  networked  crea)ve   communi)es,  providing  an  example  for  other  fields  of  prac)ce.  §  We  have  developed  a  substan)ve  digital  humani)es  research  infrastructure  for   electronic  literature,  and  helped  to  form  an  interna)onal  network  dedicated  to   such  work  and  to  the  global  sharing  of  open-­‐access  data  and  scholarship  in  the   field.  §  The  research  infrastructure  we  have  developed  (Knowledge  Base,  Anthology  of   European  Electronic  Literature,  books,  and  journal  issues)  will  have  even  more   substan)al  impact  in  years  to  come  than  they  do  at  their  moment  of  ini)al  release.
