The eCult Skills project

Culture Industry development policies need to place strategic goals of a broader context, seeking enhanced quality of service that will enforce the existing workforce and eventually attract young people to the profession. In addition, European Training systems have to adapt and to anticipate actual and future employment opportunities in Cultural Jobs as they will represent an important and growing number of jobs over the coming years. In parallel, the use of ICT for access to cultural heritage is a societal demand supported by European policy makers. Existing professional and new recruits need to acquire ICT skills and attitudes of the ideal eCulture professional such as the abilities to be creative, versatile, able to manage digital knowledge, quality and excellence, technical and humanistic training. Thus Culture Jobs need to be enhanced with eSkills to become eCulture Jobs.

eCult Skills, an EU co-funded, Transfer of innovation project,  investigated new and emerging jobs in this area in 6 EU countries, compared them and created national profiles, and applied them to the cultural sector. The outcome allowed for comparable skills sets for these professions of the future, which supports the European labor market and thus, the employability of professionals while at the same time contributing to one of the major challenges of Europe 2020.
