European projects

The multimedia library and Europe


The Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, especially through its cultural activities and multimedia library sectors, is partner and collaborates with several European research projects. In fact, interest in new technologies for the cultural and musical activities has always pushed the Accademia to investigate new possibilities and participate to ongoing research in the field, happy to use its expertise, experiences and its outstanding cultural heritage, working in an international context made of universities, research centres and leading enterprises.


Current projects

- EUROCLASSICAL: Euroclassical is a collaborative network of top European music schools, designed to support the most talented students at that critical stage between final training and a professional career by sharing videos and audios from their public concerts on the web and by the participation to International Festival and Music Courses. The Culture Programme project Euroclassical started in 2011 and will be completed in 2016. The project helps students make contact with international peers, music professionals (instrumentalists, promoters, programmers, critics, agents) and the world-wide audience.
