The CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES project is continuing to be disseminated worldwide also after the end of the funding period.
DISH2015 conference is a perfect place for discussing the many challenges faced by cultural institutions, and the needs they have to make strategic decisions about their activities and services. The key aims of the conference were inspiration, knowledge, skills, innovation and networking.
So, following the good feedback recently received in similar gatherings, once again Europeana Space, RICHES, Photoconsortium and Civic Epistemologies joined forces to progress on the analysis on the impact that the impressive amount of digitized cultural heritage (DCH) in Europe has, by making cultural heritage more accessible and by generating benefits to the content owners.
Neil Forbes from Coventry University and Fred Truyen from KU Leuven represented the CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES Consortium at the Conference. Neil introduced also the principles of the Berlin Declaration, as a main legacy of the project after the end of the funding period. The slides of the presentations are available for download (PDF, 3.2 Mb).
