The MAXICULTURE project aims to improve the impact of EC-funded ICT projects in the cultural sector by adapting, experimenting and transferring a socio-economic assessment methodology.
The idea of MAXICULTURE emerges from the perspective that there is an increasing necessity to verify the effectiveness of public investment in research and development and to ensure a tangible impact on society. It is particularly in the cultural heritage sector that this need has become increasingly pressing.
MAXICULTURE analyses the results of research, not only in terms of innovation and improvement in the art field of the cultural sector, but also in terms of the transferability of results to society in general and in particular to the industry. The objective of the project is to provide a self-evaluation toolkit for projects but also to get an idea of the situation regarding the art and to produce a detailed analysis of this industry.
