Starting in December 2009, DC-NET is an ERA-NET (European Research Area Network) project. Its main aim is to develop and strengthen the co-ordination of the public research programmes among the European countries in the sector of the digital cultural heritage.
The project is coordinating the manner in which cultural actors can and should engage with national and European e-infrastructures to generate innovative services, tools and data sets to support the research of multidisciplinary communities. A programme of seminars, workshops, meetings and conferences is involving all the relevant stakeholders. A plan of joint activities for e-Infrastructure-enabled research in the sector of digital cultural heritage will be generated and the joint activities will be initiated.
Collections Trust has a cooperation agreement with DC-NET, which means it takes part in the project's activities, without formally being a partner.
