The European Union is now consulting on what the priorities will be for the first two years of the Digital Europe Programme, the new funding programme currently preparing for 2021-2022. Sufficient support for digital culture is not guaranteed – the programme covers a wide range of issues, activities and projects, and we all know that culture is often one of the first areas to get squeezed out.Vocal support for our work and our sector will give us the best chances of being allocated sufficient funding. Indeed, the proposal document (p. 5) says as much, putting important store on this stakeholder consultation.

This consultation is an opportunity for you to make sure the Commission hears the voice of the cultural heritage sector, as the programme will boost investments in supercomputing, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, advanced digital skills, and ensuring a wide use of digital technologies across the economy and society. Digital cultural heritage and Europeana are part of these technologies.

Find out more about the consultation and take the online survey now. The consultation will close on 25 October.
