During Open Science Day 2023, the KU Leuven event where researchers share experiences about Open Science taking place this year in Leuven and online on 2 May 2023, the CitizenHeritage Project will be presented and discussed in a talk by Roberta Pireddu of the Literary Theory and Cultural Studies group at KU Leuven.
CitizenHeritage is relevant to open science being a project about citizen engagement with digital cultural heritage. scope of the project is to provide Higher Education Institutions with new insights and opportunities to include Citizen Science activities for social purposes into Higher Education Institutions curricula, teaching and learning activities. The digital realm, with the digitisation of vast collections published in open access, and the growing availability of tools for online engagement and interaction, opens up incredible new possibilities to further stimulate knowledge creation and circulation in cooperation with citizens.
