Colour has a huge social and economic impact in the EU, affecting everyday life. It is not possible, for the visually sighted, to imagine any situation of everyday life where colour does not play a part. The application of digital colour is used in many commercial, industrial and academic sectors: from digital television to graphic design. One of the fastest growth areas, for example, is the colour sector relating to digital photography and inkjet printing, which has far-reaching implications for how images are captured, printed and archived.

However, as the application of digital colour increases, there still remains a problem regarding the management of colour: how colour is transferred from one device to another, how colour is measured, perceived, printed, and as more digital print technologies are employed, its permanence.
