On 3-4 June, Europeana will host an online event in association with Portugal’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union on the subject of building capacity for digital transformation of the cultural heritage sector. The conference builds on the momentum caused by the Pandemic and the resulting crisis to help shape a necessary shared understanding of digital capacity building and explore a vision for common approaches across the sector.
The conference will also briefly look at the Recovery and Resilience Facility and the opportunities it provides for the cultural sector. The working sessions of this event (2 workshop sessions) are by invite only and aimed at cultural and digital policy makers from EU member states and the European Commission’s Digital Cultural Heritage and Europeana Expert Group. As the event aims to support capacity building across the sector, all other sessions are open to the wider public.
