Investments in digitisation

Does your cultural heritage institution have a digital strategy? And how do you compare to the European average and other member states based on expenditure on digitisation and the number of staff and volunteers engaged in digital activities?

What does this page show? 

The data presented on this page is collected via the ENUMERATE survey, a bi-annual survey which collects data from cultural heritage institutions across Europe. The goal of this survey is to create a reliable baseline of statistical data about digitisation, digital preservation and online access to cultural heritage in Europe. This page explores whether the presence of a digital strategy has an effect on internal expenditures and activities.

What is a digital strategy? 

According to the ENUMERATE survey, a digital strategy is a plan of action which clarifies how your organisation will go about the digitisation process. It could elaborate on the presentation of your online collection, your acquisition policy, the process of digitising the analog collection or your organisation’s policy for digital sustainability. Having a digital strategy could have an impact on certain aspects of an institution’s activities. 

Before you dive in, take a look at our user's guide on how to navigate the data visualisations in the Power BI Dashboards.

Digital strategy

Participating institutions that have a digital strategy, by year and by domain.

For the data in this graph we asked respondents whether their institution has a digital strategy that is endorsed by their management. Use the legend to select the member states you wish to see. You can also select a specific year and/or domain for comparison.

Staff engaged in digital activities (in FTE)

Average number of staff compared to staff engaged in digital activities.

The first slide on the left shows a fixed graph of the average number of staff overall compared to staff and volunteers engaged in digital activities. The graph on the right presents how this breaks down across segments of annual revenue budget. The second slide provides a comparison between institutions with and without a digital strategy. Use the legend to select the member states you wish to see. You can also select a specific year for comparison. Use the arrows below to switch between slides.
