CulturalBase: the Major Stakeholder Conference


CulturalBase logoThe Major Stakeholder Conference (MSC) “Co-creating Agendas for Culture in Europe. Memory, Inclusion, Creativity” was held in Barcelona (Spain) on 11-12 May, 2016 in the framework of the CulturalBase project, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program.

The Major Stakeholder Conference (MSC) “Co-creating Agendas for Culture in Europe. Memory, Inclusion, Creativity” offered a unique opportunity to network and establish direct interaction between representatives of the academia and professionals in the cultural sector. To this end, specific small-group working sessions were foreseen to provide for in-depth discussions aiming at enabling to:

  • take stock of what has been produced within the project also through the online debates on the CulturalBase website;
  • generate a consensus for the profiling of the research agenda(s) & policy recommendations.

Participation by stakeholders was extremely important and highly appreciated in attaining the overall aim of the MSC.

The RICHES project was presented by Prof. Neil Forbes (Project Coordinator, from Coventry University – UK) and Dr. Antonella Fresa (Technical Coordinator, from Promoter srl – Italy) during the Lunch work session – “Learning from other research projects”.
