Work Plan

The work plan includes activities to:

  • organise work groups to provide the political and technical framework for improving digitisation activities of cultural and scientific contents, and defining a common platform;
  • facilitate the adoption of the Lund principles, both in EU Member States and other European countries, to amplify the impact of the eEurope initiative;
  • set-up an international Forum, and electronic publication, supporting collaboration on scientific research;
  • make visible, promote and exchange information about National Policy profiles concerning digitisation;
  • identify users' needs, define training schemes and develop recommendations;
  • make available test-beds, defining mechanisms for evaluating models, methodologies, techniques and approaches, aiming at the selection of guidelines for harmonising activities and trying to reach agreement among Member States, on a common basis;
  • implement the benchmarking framework on digitisation, able to compare and improve quality of national approaches and promote best practice across Europe;
  • organise a plenary meeting every six months, hosting also thematic workshops to present and discuss results achieved by the specific work groups;
  • promote concertation events open to both EU and other national projects, to create clusters of projects;
  • promote dissemination and training activities at national level, acquisition of new skills and access to existing resources;
  • identify Road Maps suitable for activities to be launched in the near future, to support Member States in the definition of their policy, through exchange of experience, priorities agenda and work programmes.

The direct involvement of governmental organisations intends to contribute at bringing together a wide network of research centres, cultural organisations and companies interested in digitisation aspects, to co-ordinate their activities in order to advance towards common strategic goals.
