The globalisation of social, cultural and financial family members is facilitated, and even as conditioned by means of advancements within the info and communications applied sciences (ICT) and infrastructure. Human wisdom introduced mankind from an oral to a literate tradition, due to the discovery of print media. the advance of digital media within the final century prepared the ground for the data age, within which spatial and temporal constraints are lifted.

This, of course, does not reflect or contribute anything along the lines of a distinctive ‘Europe’s way…’ to societal development, nor does it indicate any serious attempt to address the new and alternative developmental possibilities opened up by a large and increasingly integrated economic union embracing some 320 million people. Rather it indicates a certain poverty of political imagination on the part of elites who rely so heavily on the importation or universalisation of ideas and practices developed elsewhere.
However, at the content side it remains to be seen whether it will not become another divide comparable to the ‘old’ media. As is usually the case with new technologies, it remains to be seen how much ICTs will be used on top of existing devices and/or 28 The European Information Society will gradually replace them.

Perhaps, the most prominent and culturespecific activity or programme of the EC is the “Culture 2000” programme. As the title suggests, this initiative specifically targets cultural cooperation--I will address its key features in more detail a little later.
