Ministerial NETWORK for Valorising Activities in digitisation PLUS

Objective

MinervaPLUS intends to enlarge the existing thematic network of European Ministries (IST-35461) to discuss, correlate and harmonise activities carried out in digitisation of cultural and scientific content, for creating an agreed European common platform, promoting recommendations and guidelines about digitisation, metadata, long-term accessibility and preservation. It starts from the need to extend the good results already achieved by the present network, and pave the way to a full integration of new countries in the existing European mainstream. It aims to co-ordinate national programmes, and its approach is strongly based on the principle of embeddedness in national digitisation activities.

The work plan includes activities to:
- animate work groups to provide the political and technical framework for improving digitisation activities of cultural and scientific contents;
- facilitate the adoption of the Lund principles, in EU Member States, accession countries and other European countries, to amplify the impact of the eEurope initiative;
- support and foster collaboration on scientific research, encouraging joint agendas and programmes;- increase the dimension, make visible, promote and exchange information about National Policy profiles concerning digitisation;
- implement users' needs requirements for accessibility and usability of web sites, define training schemes and develop recommendations;
- make available test-beds, defining mechanisms for evaluating models, methodologies, techniques and approaches;
- implement the existing benchmarking framework on digitisation, able to compare and improve quality of national approaches and promote good practice across Europe and beyond;
- promote concentration events open to both EU and other national projects, to create clusters of projects;
- promote dissemination and training activities at national level, acquisition of new skills and access to existing resources.
