- Adopting advanced digitisation technologies
- Creating a more agile digital environment (e.g. in terms of processes,awareness, culture, leadership)
- Acquiring advanced digital skills
- Carrying out mass digitisation of existing and new material
- Providing online access to digitised content
- Using digitised content in immersive experiences with the help of interactive
- technologies such as VR and AR
- Organising virtual exhibitions online

- Common data spaces for sharing cultural heritage data and building up high-value data sets
- Repository infrastructure for digitised cultural heritage content
- Cloud infrastructure for research on digitised cultural heritage material
- Supercomputing capabilities for large-scale cultural heritage simulations (e.g. models of entire cities or regions across time)
- Other: elaborate
5) Do you agree or disagree with the following statements about the importance of and the need to support digital transformation in the cultural heritage sector in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis?
