EMAF is a partner of the international project DCA – Digitising Contemporary Art, which will digitise contemporary art for the European art and culture portal "Europeana" and post it on the internet.
21 museums and art institutions and four technical partner institutions will spend thirty months digitising around 27,000 works of art and roughly 2,000 contextual documents, enabling visitors to access them online.
This way, EMAF will make significant works from the past accessible to a wide audience.
The project is being coordinated by PACKED vzw, centre of expertise in digital heritage in Brussels and is co-financed by the European Commission within the CIP - ICT Policy Support Programme.
NTUA – National Technical University of Athens (Athens, Greece), Multimedia Lab Ghent University – IBBT Interdisciplinary Institute for Broadband Technology (Ghent, Belgium), Ubitech – Ubiquitous Intelligent Technical Solutions (Athens, Greece)
