On 3 November 2014 in Limassol, Cyprus, RICHES particpated in the V International Euro-Mediterranean Conference (EuroMed 2014), held on 3-8 November.

europmed5-infoEuroMed brings together researchers, policy makers, professionals and practitioners to explore some of the more pressing issues concerning cultural heritage today. In particular, this year the conference focused on interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research on tangible and intangible CH, on the use of cutting-edge technologies for protection, restoration, preservation, massive digitisation, documentation and presentation of the CH content.

RICHES Coordinator Neil Forbes of Coventry University (UK) presented the project, its objectives and its first outcomes within a workshop, entitled The Digitisation Age: Mass Culture is Quality Culture. Challenges for Cultural Heritage and Society. The workshop, organised by Promoter Srl, brought together various EU projects, organisations and professionals for disseminating the latest achievements of the digital cultural heritage sector and providing an analysis about the impact of digital cultural heritage on the European society at large. The workshop’s themes are contained in a paper, entitled as the workshop and submitted to the conference Committee, presenting RICHES as one of the most important projects currently active in the digital cultural heritage domain.
