Improving and facilitating the participation of citizens and local communities in heritage-related projects, such as with collection days, metadata co-curation, transcriptions, and other citizen-science activities, is important to support knowledge sharing and deeper enjoyment of cultural collections.
In the context of the CitizenHeritage project, that is dedicated to foster citizen science practices in the Cultural Heritage sector and at Universities, the multiplier event Citizen Science in Cultural Heritage: practices and digital technologies held in Athens and online on 29/5/2023 was espressely focused on the role of digital technologies and available tools to enable citizen participation. The various presentations explored successful case studies in the field and considered methodological aspects and lessons learnt.
As part of the conference, a presentation by Valentina Bachi (Photoconsortium) addressed the importance of fostering the digital transformation of the cultural heritage sector by improving digitization and online sharing and reuse of cultural collections. In the presentation, current projects such as the Data Space for Cultural Heritage and EUreka3D were illustrated to discuss opportunities and challenges faced by Cultural Institutions.
