About us

The eCult Observatory is a platform for cultural heritage institutions and technology providers. It allows technology providers (from EU proejcts or SMEs)  to propose their solutions and heritage institutions to showcase their implementations. It provides a knowledge environment for all cultural heritage stakeholders interested in information and comminication technologies (ICT).

The eCultObservatory welcomes the participation of all eCult stakeholders. Please register here.
