– What do we need to focus extra on, in order to move forward in collaboration?

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.
