Although the topic of the speech was focused on the importance of e-documentation and on the current initiatives in the digital documentation/preservation in Cultural Heritage, the event was an important gathering of experts and professionals in the domain of cultural heritage preservation.

So, it was also a valuable occasion to disseminate Europeana Space to a audience of Scientific Community (higher education or research) and Industry representatives, as well as Policy Makers and Medias from various EU nationalities.

The conference title was “Protection of Cultural Heritage from Natural and Man-made Disasters” and it was held on 8-10 May 2014. This conference is part of a three-year project aimed at the development of guidelines for a strategic plan for the protection of cultural heritage from disasters and the formulation of a proposal for introducing amendments to the existing legislation, as well as at the determining of the key institutions and individuals which will be involved in the development and implementation of this strategic plan.

There was also a long discussion at the end of the invited presentation by Marinos Ioannides related to Europeana Space project objectives and pilot cases. Moreover, a leaflet indicating the current activities of CUT (including the participation to Europeana Space project) was distributed during the event.

The programme of the event is available here: along with the speakers’ presentations.
