This is a meta-project, encompassing monitoring of the individual sub-projects, research syntheses and outreach related to the BMBF-funded priority programme on digitalization in cultural education. Its aim is to synthesize available evidence from international research on digitalization in cultural education, including that provided by the projects funded in the priority programme. Moreover, we monitor and support the individual research projects within the programme. This includes facilitation of networking among the funded projects as well as with national and international researchers in the field. The meta-project provides young scientists from the priority program with methodological support...
