Digitisation of European heritage has been the subject of previous conferences during the past six years. These conferences have been held in the context of EU Presidencies. Most recent gatherings occurred in Helsinki, Salzburg, Bristol and Luxembourg. Each of these conferences has focused on different aspects of national and European digital practices and strategies. Below is a short description of these meetings.
"Why digitise? Who benefits? Impact Assessment of Digital Cultural Heritage Content and Services Digital Heritage" was held on 12 October 2006. The relevance of digital heritage for users, and the importance of cultural, economic and social influences on digitisation, as well as the challenges and possibilities of i2010 were among the topics discussed at length.

"An Expedition to European Digital Cultural Heritage: Collecting, Connecting - and Conserving?" was held on 21 and 22 June 2006. The expert meeting confronted the practical hurdles to gathering, interpreting, and preserving for the future digital media. The coordination of digital projects, the implementation Dynamic Action Plan, and the latest details of the i2010 initiative to create a European digital library were among our subjects.

Relationships between e-learning and digitisation strategies was the focus of this conference in Bristol, "Inspiring eLearning: the European Cultural Information Space." Held on 17 November 2005, the conference brought participants up-to-date on developments in the various member states. In addition, experts presented and evaluated materials on e-learning in the cultural sector. Future demands associated with technological changes were also part of our conversations.

"Future Coordination of Digitisation," an expert conference held on 21 and 22 June 2005, focused on "users and contents." Quality control principles for cultural heritage websites emerged as a theme, as we addressed such as issues as multiple languages and terminology instruments. Economic sustainability, technological developments and the attendant tools -- and finally the long-term preservation of digital media -- were part of the discussions.
