The agreement is seen as part of a development that will have high impact on bringing together many of key players and communities in the cultural heritage field in defining and delivering effective common actions.
Julia Pagel, Secretary General of NEMO, acknowledges the “importance of perceiving and dealing with European digital cultural heritage on a European and global level. ViMM is an important project since it allows museums to provide cross border access to and share their collections with European citizens. Digital cultural heritage bears the potential to open collections to new communities and to bring them together, to create added value through innovative technologies and creative enterprises. Museums need to be at the top of this development in order to stay relevant for future societies. Therefore it was obvious for NEMO to be part of ViMM.”
