Transforming heritage: from 2D to 3D digitisation – webinar series


International Council on Archives and EUreka3D consortium organise a series of webinars on 3D digitisation and digital transformation of cultural heritage. The three sessions focus on the quality guidelines for cultural heritage digitisation, the use of 3D digitisation for cultural heritage reuse and research, and innovative initiatives in 3D and the CH sector.

This activity is intended for archivists and records management professionals, CHI professionals, 3D digitisation and digital infrastructure providers, digital humanities researchers, and students in all these fields.

The webinar series is included in the EUreka3D capacity building programme, which offers online and onsite training to CHIs for high-quality standards of digitisation, advanced metadata management and aggregation to Europeana.

This event series, organized by EUreka3D project in collaboration with ICA, supports the TwinIt! campaign on fostering and promoting 3D digitisation to broaden access to culture, preserve irreplaceable cultural heritage and to spur innovation and creativity, fostering reuse and potential new services and applications in other sectors. The webinar series also contributes to the multidisciplinary capacity-building of heritage professionals in 3D digitisation, exchange of practices and pan-European collaboration and networking.
