For example, the Commission points to “elements of the Framework R&D programme (1998–2002) , especially… the key action ‘multimedia content and tools’, which has been allocated EUR 564 million, and in particular its cultural heritage components” (Commission’s ‘Europa’ web site). But as noted above, this research action line is more strongly focused on the development of digital tools and platforms that content design and production activities per se. The Commission also points to another element of FP4, ‘the Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development programme’ because this features a research stream called ‘The city of tomorrow and cultural heritage’, for which 170 million euro have been earmarked.

Again, this is all the more so when considered in the context of EU policy discourses which place so much emphasis on ‘an information society for all’ and seeking to construct ‘a knowledgebased eEurope’. These and other quantitative indicators all seem to underline the fact that the official project for constructing a new ‘knowledge-based’ European Union is a peculiarly lopsided one. In terms of material resources and surrounding policy frameworks and supports, it is heavily biased towards one end of the knowledge production and distribution spectrum.
