Digitisation has radically impacted the market of cultural goods, benefiting but a few big companies. In this scenario, how can the Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe compete with these digital giants?  

inDICEs is born in response to this scenario, proposing new frameworks that enable Cultural and Creative Industries to be competitive in an age of increasingly pervasive technological advancement.


The project undertakes 5 specific objectives

Develop a comprehensive methodology to measure and assess the economic and social impact of digitisation of cultural heritage on the access to European cultural goods and services and their modes of production.

Produce in-depth comparative analyses of the impact of digitisation and IPR regulations on the access to European culture and on creative cultural production.

Formulate policy recommendations and develop novel solutions and business models to overcome bottlenecks in the creative (re)use and consumption of cultural assets.

Establish an open observatory to track policies and trends over the long-term.

Empower Cultural Heritage Institutions (CHIs) to make strategic self-assessment about their readiness for the Digital Single Market and adaptation to the current legal frameworks in order to foster their digital transformation.
