What is e-culture?

e-Culture can be defined as digital technologies that help accessing and experiencing cultural heritage content. This focus area is devoted to skills and competences that bring digital technologies to museum collections, for the benefit of the audience and the institution.




Why do we focus on e-culture?

Cultural & Creative Industries are fast growing economic sectors that have the potential of creating new jobs, while attracting young people to museums.
