or the first time, DigiCULT has devoted a section of this publi-
cation to a detailed focus on the cultural and scientific heritage
work being carried out in one particular country. DigiCULT.Info's
Content Editor, Daisy Abbott, spent a week interviewing sector pro-
fessionals in France and their thoughts and experiences are present-
ed in this special section, alongside articles and reports from French
projects and events.
