Programme/Project objectives

European Network on Archival Cooperation is aimed at effectively establishing and gradually expanding a European network for written cultural heritage, which is supposed to strengthen people’s awareness of Europe’s common historical past and the historical memory of Europe’s countries and cultures by means of developing innovative strategies. It is most of all Europe’s numerous archival institutions that are to be considered the guardians of such historical memory. All information kept within those archives constitutes the basis of the continent’s identity and that of its countries, people and culture. Making use of these unique records has so far been a restricted business. The purpose of the project is to offer all European citizens comprehensive & easy access to their historical memory via the Internet.
