Hans van der Linden

Members Council Member
MC Term: January 2019 - December 2024
Policy Advisor Flemish Government. dept. of Culture, Youth and Media Belgium, BE

I am working at the Flemish Government (department for Culture, Youth and Media) and have been involved in the topic of digital culture and Europeana for some time. I’m also a member of the Belgian delegation within the Commission Expert Group on the common European Data Space for Cultural Heritage (CEDCHE)
I coordinated the vision statement ‘A Flemish cultural policy in the digital era’ which was approved in 2017. This vision aims to reinforce the cultural sector by developing and implementing a culture wide framework for digitization. It functions as a framework for policy actions which are currently being operationalized in the framework of the Recovery and Resilience plan. The aim for an open ecosystem based on interacting applications and standardized data is key to this approach.
