For ten years now, Europeana has played an important role in supporting memory institutions to reap the benefits of the digital transformation, and at the same guarding the heritage sector against undesired consequences. With its wide-ranging expertise and a far-reaching network, the Europeana community is in a great position to champion the growth of the cultural heritage sector.

Building on the Europeana Impact Assessment Framework, the Agenda positions cultural heritage as an invaluable resource for the European society. It highlights the transformative potential of an innovative cultural heritage and aims to prioritise its research and innovation needs in Europe’s cultural policies and research and innovation programmes.

In consultation with the Europeana community, a dedicated task force identified a list of topics that showcase the most urgent challenges and opportunities across the European cultural landscape. The Agenda calls for research and innovation actions that support the sustainable development of a technologically advanced, economically stable and socially conscious cultural heritage domain.
