The work undertaken by MinervaEC will contribute to the fulfilment of the key points of the EC recommendation of 24.08.2006, with particular regard to:

Information gathering (WP1-2)

Developing quantitative targets (WP2)

Partnerships between cultural institutions and private sector (WP3)

Establishing links among competence centres (WPs 3, 4, 6)

Achieving interoperability (WP4)

Fostering on line accessibility (WP5)

Reporting to the EC (WP1-2)

Best practices (WP6)

MinervaEC and the EC recommendation

More and more the NRG became independent with respect to the original objectives stated in Lund, creating duplications with other activities launched by the EC

Being directly appointed by the Member States, it can be seen as an inter-governmental body, so limiting the organisations of joint activities with the EC

In October 2006, in Helsinki, the EC proposed to re-launch the NRG, in order to facilitate the convergence of activities. NRG will become a working group directly run by the European Commission, through the MinervaEC project

Relationship EC-NRG

more information

In December 2006, a task force including the current and the next EU Presidencies (Finland, Germany and Portugal), as well as Italy as coordinator of MinervaEC, will meet the Commission to define the procedures to pilot the transition between the current and the new structure.
