about: MinervaPLUS intends to enlarge the existing thematic network of European Ministries 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.
