The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre is aiming at making lesser known European cultural heritage more visible. "Cultural gems" is a new web app stemming from the Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor aimed at talking directly with citizens about culture and creativity in their cities. The innovative app wants to hear from the locals what they know about their cities and the places they love, sharing their local knowledge with the visitors of cities. "Cultural gems" aims at being a meeting point between locals, city administrators and visitors to the city, in the attempt to create an EU-wide map of cultural and creative spaces going beyond the "best sellers".
