The 8th biannual European-Mediterranean (EUROMED) conference was co-organised by the UNESCO and the EU ERA Chairs on Digital Cultural Heritage. It brought together multidisciplinary researchers, policy makers, professionals, fellows, practitioners and stakeholders to explore some of the more pressing issues concerning Cultural Heritage today. In particular, the main goal of the conference was to focus on interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research on tangible and intangible Cultural Heritage, using cutting edge technologies for the protection, restoration, preservation, massive digitisation, documentation and presentation of the Cultural Heritage contents. At the same time, the event intended to cover topics of research ready for exploitation, demonstrating the acceptability of new sustainable approaches and new technologies by the user community, owners, managers and conservators of our cultural patrimony.

In the framework of the storytelling session of EuroMed 2020 conference, the REACH social platform presented a project paper title “The Reach Project Contribution to Protecting, Preserving and Valuing Tangible and Intangible Heritage through Participation”.
The involvement  in such alive event provided to REACH a unique occasion to create new liaisons and to widen the perspectives of participation in cultural heritage.
