Europeana web conference under the German Presidency 2020
5 — 6 October 2020

** invite-only**

Europeana’s digital conference ‘The role of copyright in the digital transformation of the cultural heritage sector’ explores copyright for digital cultural heritage, its role in digital transformation, and the sector’s need for capacity building in this area.

Taking place on 5 and 6 October 2020, the event is aimed at EU member states' cultural policy makers, copyright experts, and advocates. This online event is structured to ensure a rich interactive experience - encouraging participants to dig deeper into ideas, to share new perspectives and directions, and to offer up valuable insight.

The Europeana Conference is organised in collaboration with the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek and under the auspices of the German Presidency of the Council. This conference is part of the cultural programme for the German Presidency, thanks to the German Ministry of State for Culture and the Media. The event is followed on 7 October by the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek’s conference ‘Rethinking Culture and Science - Opportunities & challenges of digital transformation in Europe’.

From decision-makers to practitioners, we all have a role in ensuring that copyright serves research, education, innovation and creativity while respecting the legitimate interests of authors and rights holders. As technology develops, and borders dissipate in the digital environment, the policy landscape changes to open up new opportunities. The implementation of the Copyright in the Digital Single Market (CDSM) Directive holds many promises for the digital cultural heritage sector, and decision makers, practitioners, rights holders and others have a role in making them a reality.
