E-Space thematic workshops 2015

EUROPEANASPACEImportant appointments organized by Europeana Space project in March 2015!

The objective of Europeana Space is to increase and enhance the creative industries' safe use of digital cultural content available in online repositories, by delivering a range of resources to support their engagement. This will help unlocking the business potential of digital cultural heritage.

Both events are free entrance upon registration and stakeholders representing European creative industries, technology-based enterprises, the cultural heritage sector and higher education are warmly invited to join.

Confirmed Speakers: Sarah Whatley (Coventry University, project's coordinator), Charlotte Waelde (University of Exeter), Prodromos Tsiavos (Postscriptum), Frederik Temmermans, Peter Schelkens, Ann Dooms (iMinds).

A workshop focused on IPR that considers content rights in a non traditional way. Rather than only focussing on different licensing models, this workshop aims to make content providers aware of technical frameworks and advances that support better management of licenses.
