PAGODE Final Conference: Discovering Chinese Cultural Heritage in Europeana


The PAGODE Project, is pleased to announce its Final Conference “Discovering Chinese Cultural Heritage in Europeana”. The event will be held under the coordination of KIK-IRPA and hosted online by the University of Ljubljana.
PAGODE is a Generic Service project granted by the European Commission in the frame of the Connecting Europe Facility Programme, in support to Europeana.
The main scope of the project is to increase the engagement with Europeana according to the EU funding programme, but a broader aim is to enable collaborations among European museums and archives, as well as to foster international connections with Chinese cultural heritage institutions.
The project allowed to:
• bring more Chinese collections into Europeana,
• exhibit Chinese Cultural Heritage from European content holders and memory institutions,
• open cultural connections to China and taking advantage from a wider knowledge of mutual cultures.
Several European cultural institutions participated in the project as partners and are associated to contribute with their digital collections about Chinese cultural heritage.
The conference will be the occasion to present the project's results and the best practices that support the digital transformation of cultural heritage with a focus on Chinese Cultural Heritage hosted in European Cultural Institutions; the speakers will share their experiences of making collections accessible via Europeana.
