This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 632694
Civic Epistemologies has been invited to attend to a Networking Session where participants of 13 EC-funded projects have discussed aims and achievements in the light of establishing new, profitable collaborations and synergies.
This Networking Session has been organised in the framework of the RICHES project activities. RICHES (Renewal, innovation & Change: Heritage and European Society) is a EU research project about change: about the decentring of culture and cultural heritage away from institutional structures towards the individual and about the questions which the advent of digital technologies is posing in relation to how we understand, collect and make available Europe’s cultural heritage (CH). CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES and RICHES have established a collaboration (by signing a Memorandum of Understanding) and both will be involved in the International Conference in Berlin (12-13 November 2015).
Scope of the meeting were:
- to reflect on the impact that cultural heritage projects are delivering, in order to identify opportunities to improve the effectiveness of their results
- to share knowledge about targeted communities, in order to discover similarities in approaches, gaps and omissions to be served jointly, framework conditions that help to determine the success or otherwise of project outcomes
- to identify synergies and the potential for collaboration among projects.
Mauro Fazio (the Project Coordinator) has presented the project during the networking session during the session chaired by Prof. Neil Forbes (the RICHES Project Coordinator).
The meeting has been hosted at the Nowotny Auditorium, Covent Garden (building of the European Research Council).
