Digitisation of cultural assets is an increasingly important topic for all cultural institutions. For this reason, digitisation has been placed on Europe's cultural agenda. Online access to objects from Europe's cultures and language areas facilitates the appreciation of culture, promoting European integration.
In the context of each EU presidency, since 2001, each member state sponsors a conference on specific aspects of digitisation of culture. These conferences enable international experts to exchange information on new developments and techniques, as well as to establish frameworks for future cooperation.
This conference in Berlin during Germany's EU presidency examines concerns central to digitisation projects. Placing objects and collections in new digital contexts is creating new forms of scholarly and scientific inquiry. Accessibility and usability emerge as important considerations. This conference will address these and other issues through exploration of innovative online portals and networks. In particular, we will address the need for common standards in collecting and presenting Europe's diverse cultural heritage. The conference will raise at last the diversity of European cultural heritage as an issue.
February 23 the National Representatives Group (NRG) will meet.
