A National Representatives Group (NRG), made up of officially nominated experts from each Member State, has been established to act as "a steering group for the activities related to the co-ordination of digitisation policies and programmes, with special emphasis on cultural and scientific resources and on the contribution of public cultural institutions." Its stated mission is to monitor progress regarding the objectives encapsulated in the Lund Principles.
The NRG held its first meeting in Brussels on 11 December 2001, the second meeting took place in Alicante, Spain on 16-17 May 2002. These meetings, will continue to take place every 6 months under the chairmanship of the current Presidency.
The NRG will share national experiences and create a common platform for cooperation and coordination of national activities across the European Union, as well as for their follow up at national level. It provides a stable, continuing focus for consensus building between Member States, for promoting good practice, and for encouraging initiatives to support the visibility of quality cultural sites. As conclusion of that important meeting an important progress of the digitisation agenda has been reported and Terms of Reference have been produced.
