The scheme aims to bring Europe’s rich cultural heritage to one platform using the latest digital technology. It also aims to allow broader access to heritage data and integrate it with systems supporting cooperation in education and tourism, the statement said. The programme will also be instrumental in tackling risks posed to cultural heritage by natural disasters, mass tourism and environmental pollution.

The other initiative signed by Hungary is aimed at introducing and promoting the development of quantum communication infrastructure. It has been joined by seven other EU member states so far.
