Cultural heritage can be an economic asset, a tourist attraction and an identity factor, and it can also contribute to social cohesion. Throughout 2018, declared European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH), all EU Member States and institutions have been organizing events, conferences and meetings, and have been allocating funds to preserve and promote all forms of cultural heritage. Between 2007 and 2013, cultural participation has contracted in all European countries, where “low” level of participation went up from 30% to 34%.
The aim of this report is to analyze the current status of the use of digital tools to promote cultural heritage in the countries involved and at European level, according to accessible principle.
Cultural heritage represents an extraordinary resource for growth: both from the point of view of cohesion and social inclusion, and as an economic and productive asset.
