On 15 March 2023 from 10:00-12:30 CET, the European Commission is inviting to the virtual event A Cloud for all – the European Collaborative Cloud for Cultural Heritage. The aim of the event is to explain the benefits of the upcoming European Collaborative Cloud for Cultural Heritage and to build a community around the Cloud.

The event will also allow for participants to propose solutions on specific issues such as capacity building requirements, opportunities for digital collaboration and commercial opportunities for the sector. NEMO has been invited to host a session on the needs of the museum sector and give input on how to mobilise museum professionals. Other sessions will offer insights into the digital dimension of the ongoing restoration of the Notre Dame in Paris, France.

Mariya Gabriel, EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture Education and Youth, will open the event.

European Collaborative Cloud for Cultural Heritage

The European Collaborative Cloud for Cultural Heritage is a European Commission’s initiative that will help safeguard European cultural treasures and ensure that our rich cultural heritage continues to thrive in the digital age. The Cultural Heritage Cloud will foster cooperation and co-creation among cultural, creative and technology sectors. Moreover, it will bring tangible benefits in the day-to-day work of all cultural heritage professionals and museums, including the smaller, rural and remote ones.

The event on 15 March is a direct response to the findings of the stakeholder’s survey, in which stakeholders indicated a need for clear information on the benefits of a Cultural Heritage Cloud.
