Third Multiplier Event: Scattered Heritage across Digital Humanities

The third Multiplier Event “Scattered Heritage across Digital Humanities” was organised by Bergamo University in the Museo delle storie di Bergamo on Thursday 25 October.

Many stakeholders attended the event such as professors, students and all the partners :

EUFRAK-EuroConsults Berlin GmbH (Germany), Fachhoschule Stralsund (Germany), Dalarna University (Sweden), Aveiro University (Portugal), European Projects Association asbl (Belgium) and, obviously, Bergamo University (Italy).

First of all Luca Driussi, coordinator of our project presented our project to the participants. Then, there was an interactive workshop between the different stakeholders, whose thematic was “ #DigitalizingHeritage – from local to global”.

Then, we went into the topic in depth through the analysis of three  Italian case studies:

  1. Archivio fotografico Sestini: a heritage of images. A digitization project to preserve and share.

Presented by Roberta Frigeni, director of Museo delle storie di Bergamo, and by Sergio Bellini – Mida Informatica/ZeroUNO.

  1. Networking house-museums throughout Italy.

Presented by Roberta Garibaldi and Elena Viani, both from the Bergamo University.

  1. New technologies for food and wine heritage.

Presented by Roberto Peretta, from Bergamo University.

Finally, the Multiplier Event ended with a “#OpenFieldLab. The objectives were to engage the participants to discover heritage in the Upper Town of Bergamo with their senses ( taste, sight, hearing, smell and touch) and the presentation of the results of this last. 

 

 

 

Third Transnational Meeting in Italy

On Thursday 25th October and Friday 26th October 2018, We organised our third project meeting hosted by our partner University of Bergamo.

All the partners attended to the event: EUFRAK-EuroConsults Berlin GmbH (Germany), the Fachhoschule Stralsund (Germany), Dalarna University (Sweden), Aveiro University (Portugal) and the European Projects Association (Belgium).

The Project Meeting was divided in two days.

In the first one , there was a brief presentation of the Multiplier Event organised in Bergamo to the project partners, then, the analysis of the pending tasks.

In particular, our colleague Werner Gronau presented the Handbook that We will provide to the students

Then, there was the preparation of the Multiplier Event, scheduled in the afternoon.

 

The following day, the partners were working on analysing:

  1. The best strategies for project management
  2. The best way to achieve the mid-term targets.
  3. The final considerations about the Handbook ( Output 1 ), the online courses review ( Output 2 ) and finally the didactic tutorial.

 

Moreover, a part of the Meeting was dedicated to the ISP’s and Blended Mobilities approach.

AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO CULTURAL HERITAGE AS A PILLAR OF REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The second Multiplier event of the project was held on Wednesday 06th June 2018 at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium.

Among the consortium of partners around 50 participating stakeholders were carefully selected in order to have people engaged who could provide a substantial contribution to the conference/debate.

During the introductory part of that event, MEP Ivan Jakovčiċ and Frédéric Fabre, Secretary General at European Projects Association Asbl were presenting conference’s aims, especially, regional issues in Istria (Croatia) and relevance of an integrated approach to cultural heritage at European level.

Then Luca Driussi, project manager at EUFRAK, presented our project “E-CUL-TOURS to the stakeholders.

After an initial introduction of the project, 7 European stakeholders, were participating in our panel discussion called  “Integrated approach to Cultural heritage as a tool of territorial attractiveness and development in Europe”. Each speaker had 10 minutes’ slot for presenting initiatives and projects to promote cultural heritage as a key driver of local and regional strategies.

The next part was devoted to debate on the concerns that emerged in the event. Prof. Werner Granau moderated the discussion, and partners and stakeholders could discuss the best strategies such as best practices in order to improve the governance.

Many interesting ideas came out of each roundtable that we will share in the following weeks on the website.

EVENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO EUROPEAN CULTURAL HERITAGE AS A PILLAR OF REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Description:

This panel in the European Parliament is dedicated to discussing how the integrated & holistic perspectives related to cultural heritage could influence the employability and entrepreneurship skills of Youth and stakeholders and innovative ideas in the European context.

We aim at showing how cultural heritage might be a pillar of regional strategies in order to strengthen territorial attractiveness increasing tourism and population settlements. 

Also, we aim at exploring possibilities how regional development funds and other EU funding mechanisms could approach this issue.

In addition to this, the event will be used to present the project “E-CUL-TOURS: managing Cultural heritage in Tourism” and engage discuss those issues with stakeholders. Also, the event will be used to present best practices.

The recommendations discussed during the event will be incorporated into a report providing fresh ideas, available on our website.
