This panel session is organised as part of the European Commission’s public consultation on the Digital Europe Programme (DEP). It will be an open constructive dialogue on harnessing the digital transformation for public services and cultural heritage with the speakers’ views on these two topics. In the panel session, the invited speakers will express their views on the Digital Europe Programme’s proposed objectives to support:

The digital transformation of public services with:

• Platform(s) for the provision of public services and data to European businesses and citizens seamlessly across borders;

• Support for the realisation of the once-only principle across borders;

• Support for interoperability in innovative gov-tech solutions.

The digital transformation of culture with:

• 3D technologies for providing new ways of advancing scientific understanding, handling and restoring damaged or fragile heritage, ensuring digital preservation of cultural artefacts;

• Best practices on use of cutting edge digital technologies;

• Europeana as a catalyst and innovator for cultural heritage institutions;

• A network of competence centres for advanced digitisation of cultural heritage.
