The New Renaissance Report

Also known as "Comité des Sages" Report

Monday, January 10, 2011

The "Comité des Sages" (Reflection Group) was set up in April 2010 by Vice President responsible for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes and Commissioner in charge for Education and Culture Androulla Vassiliou. The task of the Group was to make recommendations to the European Commission, European cultural institutions and any stakeholders, on ways and means to make Europe's cultural heritage and creativity available on the Internet and to preserve it for future generations, looking in particular at funding sources, at how cultural organisations and the private sector can interact in the digital age, and at responsibilities and solutions for digitising material that is in the public domain or still in copyright.
