Preserving Belgium’s rich cultural and scientific heritage and disclosing those valuable assets for researchers and the general public is important.

DIGIT, the Digitization Programme of the Belgian Science Policy (BELSPO), aims to support the Belgian federal museums, libraries and archives with the digitization of their cultural and scientific patrimony.

BELSPO, with its 10 Federal Scientific Institutions , offers Belgian scientists an exceptional framework and toolset for their research activities. Their collections attract more than 1.2 million visitors per year. These 10 institutions, together with the Royal Belgian Film Archive (CINEMATEK) are the primary content partners of the DIGIT programme.
