The availability of high quality digital content is in the basis of humanitarian and social research. Smaller countries from the South-Eastern Europe are still far from moving in line with the European Commission guidelines. The European Commission Recommendation of 24 August 2006 on the digitization and online accessibility of cultural material and digital preservation recommends setting up of large and sustained digitization facilities, encouraging partnerships between cultural institutions and the private sector, solving the problems around orphan works as well as developing clear quantitative targets for digitization efforts. The practices in South-Eastern Europe are still not matching the priorities communicated on the top EC level. To help the development of joint activities of international teams from the region and increase local capacities, a group of professionals decided to launch the South-Eastern European Digitization Initiative (SEEDI). It is an international effort to develop awareness about digitization of cultural and scientific heritage in the South-Eastern Europe (SEE) and to bring together representatives of all stakeholders in the cultural heritage domain. The paper will present the activities of SEEDI in the last three years, its conferences and international journal and a vision for the future.
