In 2014, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) established the National Digital Heritage Strategy together with dozens of professionals from the various sectors and the so-called sectoral focal points (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, National Library, National Archives, Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences, Cultural Heritage Agency). This strategy was presented at the first Digital Heritage Week in April 2015. It was implemented using three themed work programmes for Visible, Usable and Sustainable Digital Heritage, in which dozens of institutions and partnerships participated. These work programmes ran from April 2015 to the end of 2017.
All the results from the work programmes of this first phase can be found under Knowledge and services. The work programs can be downloaded:

From start-up to scale-up
In 2018, the collaboration continued at full speed. “From start-up to scale-up” was its motto. We stuck to the chosen course and worked on expanding and strengthening the network in the wider cultural field, with continuity and inclusivity as key concepts. In addition, we prepared for the activities in 2019 and 2020. Thanks to extra resources from the coalition agreement, we could accelerate the implementation of the National Digital Heritage Strategy.
Under Activities you can read more about the programme for 2019 and 2020.
