Premiere is funded together with five other R&I Horizon Europe projects, under the common topic, “Preserving and enhancing cultural heritage with advanced digital technologies”.
Following the topics premise, the projects are using digital technologies, from 3D to artificial intelligence and virtual/augmented reality, to ensure preservation and wide access to cultural heritage and the arts.
R&I actions funded under this topic are expected to establish the state of the art of digital methodologies and tools to protect the rich and diverse European cultural heritage, including the “born digital” heritage, in complementarity with more established conservation and protection methods.
Furthermore, by creating new or fostering existing tools, they aim at boosting the socioeconomic sustainability of cultural and creative industries in the COVID-19 postcrisis period and provide sustainable applications and solutions to strengthen their innovation potential.
For this, transfer of expertise and reuse of the tailor-made know-how is a fundamental part of the six projects, in order to foster the digital transformation of Cultural Heritage institutions. This is made possible, through the collaboration between technological firms, research institutes, universities and cultural and creative sectors/industries in the framework of each project.
