Research and digital cultural heritage: new impact horizons

Share

On 11 and 12 May 2021, Europeana will bring together cultural heritage professionals, policy makers, academics and researchers to discuss impact horizons of research when nurtured by digital cultural heritage.

Digital content and technology democratise access to cultural heritage and can stimulate positive social and economic change, especially when they support Research and Innovation. The cultural heritage sector is exploring new ways of community engagement, participatory and co-creation processes, in parallel with researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities, who are the most interested in the potential reuse of digital cultural heritage. For their part, policy-makers and funders increasingly require social impact to be considered in research design and outcomes.

This symposium is the first event that brings together an impact-oriented approach and the research perspective within the Europeana context. The scientific committee has arranged the programme across four sessions to facilitate participation from different time zones. Twenty speakers will represent the research and cultural heritage sectors and the policy making sphere.
