E-Space coordinator prof. Sarah Whatley will talk about how digital cultural data need to be re-used at best, to unlock their business potential for fostering economic growth. The creative industry is the key stakeholder to leverage on DCH for creating new tools/services, thus generating new employment and economic rewards; but a bigger dialogue should progress with cultural institutions, for developing mutual benefitting public-private-partnerships.

Sarah’s speech will take place in a panel workshop including E-Space and other projects and initiaves on 14th October.
