Specific challenge: The various forms of cultural tourism in Europe are important drivers of growth, jobs and economic development of European regions and urban areas. They also contribute, to the understanding of other peoples’ identities and values by driving intercultural understanding and social development in Europe through discovering various types of cultural heritage. However, although cultural tourism by its nature invites cross border, regional and local cooperation, its full innovation potential in this respect is not yet fully explored and exploited.
The level of development of cultural tourism between certain regions and sites, including those between the neighbouring countries in Europe, is still unbalanced. Deprived remote, peripheral or deindustrialized areas lag behind, whereas high demand areas are over – exploited in an unsustainable manner. There is also a significant knowledge gap in terms of quantitative and qualitative data on the phenomenon of cultural heritage tourism and on understanding its contribution to cultural Europeanisation and economic and social development in Europe.

Specific Challenge: The traditional and social media landscape is changing rapidly. Digitization, the spread of globally interactive delivery platforms, greater emphasis on data, capital concentration, concerns about undue political interference and fake news, plus transformation in journalism and news production are among the triggers for these changes.
Media play a crucial socio-cultural and political role through shaping views and aspirations, opinions, political choices and identities. Gap exists in knowledge about the nature and implications for Europe as a whole and at the national and regional levels of recent transformation in the European media landscape. The role of contemporary media in fostering process of political and cultural Europeanization through re-shaping towards a European political and cultural representations and identities needs to be better understood How are major transformations in the media landscape affecting the evolution of a European political and cultural space? Do processes of Europeanization and localisation contradict or complement each other? How are media representations of major European political and cultural issues (like refugees, migration, religions, common history, geopolitical and economic crises, terrorism, sport, elections, etc.) affected by new modes of production, consumption, and by new trends of ownership and control over media content? How have global and European media landscape impacted on specifically European political and cultural markers, symbols and identity elements and on perceptions and attitudes towards Europe? To what extend does the European media landscape foster or hamper the European project and societal cohesion?

- « Culture beyond borders – Facilitating innovation and research cooperation between European museums and heritage sites » – TRANSFORMATIONS-19-2020
Specific Challenge: Today, when communication, media and culture flows freely beyond borders, there is growing need to connect cultural heritage collections and sites and present Europe’s tangible and intangible heritage to citizens and tourists in their wider historical and geographical contexts. Museums and heritage sites are also knowledge centres for heritage conservation, management and cultural tourism. Sustained cooperation between museums and heritage sites would increase European public interest, cultural tourism and the innovation potentials of these institutions for heritage sciences and the cultural and creative sectors thus it would contribute to sociocultural inclusion, economic growth and job creation. However, cooperation between museums and heritage sites is hindered by lack of sustained financing, institutional and legal obstacles, IPR and insurance issues, etc. Stakeholder involvement at European level is necessary for identifying gaps and obstacles but also best practices and fields where research and innovation can develop new solutions for successful cooperation.
- « European Competence Centre for the preservation an d conservation of Monuments and Site » – DT-TRANSFORMATIONS-20-2020
Specific Challenge: The increasing occurrence of disasters such as floods, earthquakes, fires, and pollution can sometimes cause irreversible damage to cultural heritage sites and historical documents, or destroy entire areas together with the documents and monuments therein. Europe’s cultural heritage sites and many more historical documents, monuments and historic buildings across the Member States are in danger. Apart from losing our heritage, the culture and creative sectors, and related industries such as tourism and hospitality rely heavily on the appeal and conservation of cultural heritage sites, documents and monuments. Digital technology can help preserve the knowledge of threatened heritage artefacts, museums, monuments, documents and sites and make them accessible for citizens across Europe and for future generations. In addition, online access to high quality holistically documented digital replicas (including storytelling) of artefacts, sites, documents and monuments may increase the appeal and promotion of a place, city or Member State, thus supporting the local tourism and hospitality industries.

- « Mentoring scheme for schools: mainstreaming innovation by spreading the advanced ICT-based teaching practices to a wide circle of schools » – DT-TRANSFORMATIONS-21-2020
Specific Challenge: Education, in particular at school level, has to keep the pace with the digital transformation of our society. While some schools have a culture of well-developed ICT strategies and pursue very innovative practices, they often work in isolation and there is a growing digital gap between schools that are advanced and those who are not leveraging the advantages of ICT- based pedagogies. The greatest challenge is to mainstream digital innovation in education that contributes to improve educational performance and school climate, reaching the less advanced schools and teachers. To accelerate the digital transformation of schools in Europe, there is a need for sharing, discussing, spreading and adopting innovative practices, supporting a whole-school approach andpromoting a model of school mentoring. This requires implanting and fostering a broader culture of innovation and leveraging networks and hubs of innovation to help disseminate and widely diffuse best practice involving ICT. Accelerating digital transformation in education and delivering high-quality digital education to all students requires bridging this gap and accelerating change by diffusing innovative ICT-based educational practices across schools and stimulating bottom-up diffusion of innovation through school-to-school peer-learning.
- « Enhancing access and uptake of education to reverse inequalities » – TRANSFORMATIONS-22-2020
Specific Challenge: Inequalities have been rising over several decades in s Europe in spite of increased levels of welfare and public spending as a proportion of GDP. Growing inequality is a threat to economic growth, democracy and equal opportunities for future generations. Social disadvantages and precariousness are to a large extent inherited whereby low educational attainment of both parents and children play a key role. There is ample evidence that children from less privileged social backgrounds trail behind in access and uptake of education. Often disadvantages such as low-skilled parents, mono-parental families, limited access to social services (e.g. health and housing), and cultural resources, and being from a migration background, cumulate. The challenge is to reverse this trend and to enhance upward social mobility by significantly improving access and uptake of education in Europe, in line with the European Pillar of Social Rights.
