This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 632694
The project’s Work package 3 “Roadmap Development” has the task to design a Roadmap for broadening e-Infrastructure deployment to support citizen researchers in digital culture.
Developing the Roadmap is the main objective for one of the project’s work packages (WP3), coordinated by the Swedish National Archives (RIKSARKIVET). A first draft version of the Roadmap was presented to the Workshop on the Roadmap in Leuven on Friday 20 February by the WP Leader, Borje Justrell.
The Workshop was held in the Erasmushuis, premises of the Faculty of Art of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. More than 35 experts attended the event showing interest on the theme of the Citizen Science. 9 Speakers from different Stakeholders and the audiences have discussed around the first version of the Roadmap and all the interesting inputs received will be integrated in the next version of the Roadmap that will be released in May.
The roundtable that followed the speeches was organised by splitting all the experts in two groups. The discussion focused around three questions on the Roadmap. At the end the groups reported the results of the discussion.
A curious note: during the workshop there was a power outage that affected most of the city. The fault has been resolved during the afternoon and has unfortunately prevented the opportunity to listen two interventions that had been organized by video conference, but did not interrupt the discussion among the participants.
