CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES project celebrated its end in November 2015 with the International Conference “DIGITAL HERITAGE AND INNOVATION, ENGAGEMENT AND IDENTITY”, held in Berlin on 12-13 November 2015.
During the Final Conference, the partners of CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES and RICHES (www.riches-project.eu) projects proposed the adoption of the Berlin Charter, a set of principles for encouraging and supporting citizens’ engagement in cultural heritage and humanities research in the digital age.
Several European organisations and individuals have already agreed to sign the Charter and to advocate its principles in their own operations.
The Charter is open to be adopted by all interested parties, namely private organisations, public institutions, artists, professionals, researchers and interested citizens.
Should you wish to adopt the Berlin Charter, please contact:
