‘Smart Assets for re-Use in Creative Environments’

SAUCE is a three-year EU Research and Innovation project between 9 companies and research institutions to create a step-change in allowing creative industry companies to re-use existing digital assets for future productions.

The goal of SAUCE is to produce, pilot and demonstrate a set of professional tools and techniques that reduce the costs for the production of enhanced digital content for the creative industries by increasing the potential for re-purposing and re-use of content as well as providing significantly improved technologies for digital content production and management.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 780470.
