Leestip - Europeana Creative: Where Cultural Heritage and Creative Industries Meet to Re-Use Europe's Digital Memories

9 november 2015




In een recent verschenen editie van het tijdschrift Uncommon Culture staat het artikel "Europeana Creative: Where Cultural Heritage and Creative Industries Meet to Re-Use Europe's Digital Memories".

De introductie van het artikel:

"The Digital Agenda for Europe promotes the creation, production and distribution of digital content and services for a vibrant single market1. Several challenges in the area of digital culture are addressed under the European Commission’s  CIP-ICT-PSP Programme, from the online accessibility and preservation of Europe’s digitised cultural heritage to the re-use of these materials by creative industries. Experimentation with this cultural material for creativity is taking place in several co-funded projects like Europeana Creative, Europeana Space and Europeana Food and Drink. These projects experiment with business models, innovative applications and services for creative re-use of cultural resources and in particular the material accessible through Europeana , Europe’s museum, library and archive providing access to over 40 million items. This is especially important nowadays, considering that the creative economy is a substantial source of growth in the European Union (EU), accounting for 4.5% of total EU GDP, employing 6.7 million people in the EU and accounting for more than 4% of the EU external exports2.

Re-use of digital cultural heritage is also at the core of Europeana Foundation’s Strategic Business Plan 2015–20203 and Europeana Creative is one of Europeana’s key projects in this regard. The Europeana Foundation believes that openly accessible digital cultural heritage can foster the exchange of ideas and knowledge, leading to a better mutual understanding of our cultural diversity and contributing to a thriving knowledge economy for Europe4.

This article provides an overview of the activities and outcomes of Europeana Creative. It provides practical examples of collaborations between cultural and creative industries, the framework needed to facilitate this and the challenges and opportunities along the way."
