ERNACT Vintage Projects
In this page you can explore ERNACT’s older vintage digital transformation projects starting in 1991 (pre-Internet). Although implemented using technologies that are now obsolete, they still hold lessons for today’s digital transformation initiatives.
To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we decided to develop a number of data-driven animated charts and maps to help celebrate the pioneering work of the EU, ERNACT and its partners in the 1990s and the first decade of the 21st Century." In the end we created a series of four for you to view:
(1) Fishbone Timeline (2) Project and Retro Logos; (3) Funding Programmes and (4) European Partner Map
