Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication (MCC), supported by BNE, AJPI, NKOM, MCSG, Riksarkivet, PNL, ICIMISS, MKSK and Dédale
Work package 6 intends to provide highest visibility at European level on the best practices in the field of content enrichment as well as in the field of innovative services. These activities will contribute to the construction of a European common knowledge space and contribute to the construction of the European Digital Library
Workpackage 6 strategic objectives are to:
The analysis will mainly deal with heritage cultural resources; however a special focus will be done on new cultural contents (such as digital art, new images, music, virtual community…).
A focus will be made on content enrichment initiatives, in other projects supported by the European Commission within the eContentplus Programme, as well as with other national and Trans-national initiatives.
Description of the work
The following activities will be carried out :
1. Identifying existing cultural digitised content and contributing to the development of a road-map for the European Common Information Space
This will be done through a detailed analysis of the current situation and trends in the partners countries and the direct involvement of the partner Ministries and Agencies of Culture to agree on the common framework.
This activity will provide a large view of cultural digital resources available for valorisation in such various domains as tourism, education (formal, informal and non formal), media or industry, but it will also give a charter for content priorities in digitisation projects, in order to provide an content oriented European Knowledge Space.
2. Identifying the needs, the emerging uses, and the opportunities provided by ICT in term of new services and digital cultural content valorisation:
3. Identifying pilot actions, collecting good practices and identifying competence centres in the field of content enrichment:
The analysis will focus on innovative services and innovative practices from the point of view of different users groups. The work will focus on the liaison with existing European initiatives, such as the ones supported in IST or eContentplus programmes. Test-beds will be organised in different participating countries.
4. Diffusion and dissemination:
This will be done through the organisation of 1 seminar per country and the publication of information materials in the different partner languages.
WP6 will focus its activities on existing and emerging users’ needs at European level and will include multilingual approaches. It will mainly base its activities on surveys and researches, online questionnaires or with interviews, by experts or stakeholders meetings, etc., in order to identify, assess, promote best practices and eventually generate new best practices, within a cyclic approach: identification -> assessment -> promotion.
