ECHO – Cultural Heritage Online

The ECHO initiative aims to create an infrastructure to bring cultural heritage on the Internet, and builds up a network of institutions, research projects and other users which provide content and technology for the common infrastructure, with the aim to enrich the “agora” and to create a future Web of Culture and Science.
