January 17, 2013

Funding Scheme: 2013-01-17


The project dedicated to the ways of financing, producing or disseminating cultural content through ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and managed by Peaceful Fish Productions Ltd and MfG Baden Württemberg Public Innovation Agency for ICT and Media and Kennisland. Which was launched on January 2013 and financed by the EU. Garnered previously the support of the European Parliament.Because it falls within the” Culture Programme: cultural diversity and cultural heritage”. so it contribute to facilitate the access of this programme to the digital technologies.


The project is led by Peaceful Fish Productions Ltd. together with MfG Baden Württemberg Public Innovation Agency for ICT and Media and Kennisland. The project should contribute to facilitating access to culture (including cultural heritage) and culture literacy via online devices and should promote cultural diversity in the digital environment.

The digital shift is bringing about massive changes in the way cultural goods are created, managed, accessed, consumed, and monetised. Value chains are evolving, and cultural operators should develop strategies based on new business models, which take advantage of digital technologies.

To feed reflection on these new processes, the European Commission will select and promote between 10 and 15 new and, as yet, untested ideas as to how to make innovative use of ICT based technologies in order to finance, produce, make available, disseminate and/or extract value from cultural content. The selection of these ideas will take place in the second half of 2013.
