Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 
Het Nieuwe Instituut (the New Insituut) is an institute for the creative industry, which is part of the Dutch Basic Cultural Infrastructure. Het Nieuwe Instituut organises exhibitions, lectures and fellowships, carries out research and development projects and publishes reports on the outcomes of its projects in the field of architecture, design and digital culture. Digital culture, architecture and design are three embedded traditions of design practice and cultural discourse. In the Netherlands, each discipline emerged from a well-defined heritage including a specific territory of intervention and a set of practical and conceptual tools. Yet as living practices, the three disciplines have interwoven and produced new hybrids in response to technological change, economic forces and societal questions. Het Nieuwe Instituut is dedicated to exploring digital culture as both a discipline in its own right and as part of a post-disciplinary cultural context.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 
In addition to realising the exhibitions and surrounding activities, the organisation has programmed several conferences and symposia. Various publications were published. Also, the Network Archives Design and Digital Culture (NADD) was set up: a partnership of heritage institutions, including Het Nieuwe Instituut, knowledge and research institutions and individual archive keepers focused on Dutch design heritage. Design and digital culture contribute significantly to the way in which Dutch society defines, manifests and develops itself. A well-preserved, unlocked and accessible memory is a precondition for the design disciplines to be able to meet the task assigned to them in our culture and society.
