In line with the philosophy of large-scale cooperation projects of the Creative Europe programme, the project partners will collaborate in a wide range of complementary and cross-cultural activities and actions. Develop new business models for European archives in the XXI Century through the realization of various training workshops, round tables on serious games, as well as organize artistic residencies and exchange for graphic and industrial designers.
Explore new audiences and work with new profiles to promote the archives to new target groups through the realization of an archival literacy online course, the creation of an App linked to the 3 transmedia exhibitions and connected to social networks creation, by teenagers of a virtual European Youths Archives and last but not least further the cooperation with silver researchers and hobby researchers through surveys and crowdsourcing activities.
Among the new field of business model still quite unexplored by the European archives are the income and visibility opportunities derived from the creation of merchandising products. Undoubtedly, archives need to venture new possibilities of raising their public profiles as, for instance, the museum already do successfully with running their own museum shops.
