SURVEY: Cultural heritage as a resource for today’s businesses

Knowing the needs, thoughts and ideas of companies is key to overcome cultural barriers and reduce misunderstandings between culture- and commercial actors. Therefore, we have asked companies in what they know about cultural heritage and whether they use it today or how they would like to do so. Click here if you want to see the results from the survey.
