Europeana welcomes a report from the European Parliament’s Culture and Education Committee, calling for more content and a sustainable funding solution.
The report, which was unanimously approved by the Committee in a meeting on February 22 and 23, urges governments and cultural institutions to work together to speed up digitisation of their cultural heritage. It suggests that the cost of digitisation should be the subject of a specific budget line in the next Financial Framework.
The report also underlines that the digitisation of public domain content should not create new copyright restrictions.
