PLUGGY’s novel technologies are expected to enable the citizens of Europe, even in its less developed regions, to be actively involved in cultural heritage activities: this will allow a better understanding of their local surroundings and relations with far-away cultures.
Through their cooperation and interaction, the users of the PLUGGY social platform and its pluggable applications will be able to develop a common cultural and intellectual heritage of Europe and to participate in the shaping of an overall European culture landscape.
PLUGGY’s strong effects on:
Society | PLUGGY promotes wider understanding of heritage and recognises that objects and places are not, in themselves, what is important about cultural heritage, but rather the meanings and uses that people attach to them and the values they represent.
Economic Growth & Sustainability | PLUGGY improves innovation capacity and integration of new knowledge. Through its smart technologies, appealing and accessible by all, it will mobilise vivid economic sectors i.e. tourism and the creative industries, indirectly promoting local development and entrepreneurship.
Environment | PLUGGY promotes cultural diversity. Culture, like Nature, needs diversity to thrive. Understanding and promoting diversity in culture will inevitably promote ecological awareness.
Heritage & EU | PLUGGY’s crowdsourcing and Social Platform approach enables more participative, democratic and creative cultural heritage actions, a key objective of European Agenda for Culture.
