EU to build a Horizon Europe funded cloud for cultural heritage
The European Commission and EU Member States are starting discussions on creating a Collaborative Cloud for Cultural Heritage to digitally safeguard European culture.
The infrastructure will provide technologies for digitising artefacts, researching artworks and documenting data. This promises to enable transdisciplinary and large-scale collaboration between cultural heritage scholars, curators, archivists and conservators, allowing smaller and remote institutions to participate in joint projects.
By 2025, the EU is set to invest €110 million in the initiative as part of the Horizon Europe research programme.
