Description The objective of the ENUMERATE Thematic Network was to build towards the Digital Agenda 2020, by achieving a lasting transformation in the availability, quality, accuracy and relevance of statistical data about digitization, digital preservation and online access to cultural heritage in order to support and drive strategic decision-making at European, national and institutional level.The ENUMERATE Thematic Network achieved this objective through:The development of a vibrant and sustainable European community of practice, connecting practitioners in statistical analysis and digital content creation and preservation and supporting the sharing of knowledge and best practices.The creation, promotion and development of a statistically valid open methodology for surveying the digitization, use, preservation and associated costs of cultural heritage materials in Member States.The implementation of a multi-annual programme of coordinated surveys based on this methodology, including wide-scale harmonized statistical data-gathering and more in-depth and analytical surveying of digitization activities by European cultural heritage institutions.The creation and maintenance of an open, sustainable data platform to collate, analyse and promote the use of the normalized data and intelligence arising from these surveys. The aim of this approach was to deliver a normalised and harmonised knowledge base about these activities throughout Europe.The ENUMERATE procjet was carried out by the members of the SIG-STATS and built on the skills, knowledge and networks developed during the NUMERIC project.
