PROMOTER's role

Promoter is Task leader for establish an effective framework and mechanisms for spreading awareness of project activities and outcomes. 

It draws out knowledge and best practice and disseminates it to its target users, employing a range of different methods.
The implementation of the project's Communication and Dissemination Plan is realised by the creation of an online portal and a project's website which will be keep costantly updated with news, initiatives and data collected.

 

 

Project profile

REACH project aims to Re-design access to Cultural Heritage, gaining a wider participation in preservation, (re)use and management of European culture.

In the context of radical social changes taking place at global levels, Europe faces a serious challenge: the need for its citizens to live together in peace and mutual respect and to value and enjoy the diversity of cultures, which they bring to their respective societies. The REACH project is based on the proposition that CH plays an important role in contributing to social integration in Europe, and that a fuller and more detailed picture of the range, type and impact of research and participatory research methodologies, current and future, associated with these subjects will further enhance their potential for social good.
So the overall focus of the project is on questions concerning the participatory governance of CH, with the aim to derive from this debate a proposal for a resilient European CH.

The three-year REACH project will establish a Social Platform as a sustainable space for meeting, discussion and collaboration by a wide-ranging network of development bodies, tourism, education, creative industries, cultural heritage professionals, academic experts, arts practitioners, professionals in archives and galleries, associations and interest groups representative of non-professionals and local societies, and policy-makers – all those with a stake in research in the field of culture and CH.

The REACH Social Platform’s activities will have a twofold scope:

  • Support: to map and provide analysis of research results achieved in previous programmes, to identify current and emerging research trends, and to offer authoritative new knowledge of the CH field to the European Commission and policy makers;
  •  Coordination: to offer benefits to its participants, expanding knowledge of complementary research domains, and of new participatory research methodologies, generating opportunities for cooperation, offering pathways to wider user engagement with research outputs.

This social platform is a long-term collaborative enterprise; it is intended that it will continue to function well beyond the end of the project. REACH will deliver a range of concrete outcomes to be used beyond the EC funding period.

4 pilots will be developed in different European countries each with the aim to validate and improve the models of participation elaborated demonstrating in practice the advantages and possible difficulties that may arise:

Minority Heritage: Hungary and Czech Republic
Institutional Heritage: Germany and central Europe
Rural Heritage: Spain and Carpathian regions
Small Towns Heritage: Czech Republic and central Italy

In parallel with the physical events, REACH project involves the realization of the open-heritage.eu online portal; it will be a primary instrument to channel all the information about REACH initiative towards its audiences, recruit new members and facilitate the process of interaction and debate

CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES (2014-2015)

PROMOTER's role

Promoter played the role of Technical Coordinator, contributing to the coordination of the partners, monitoring and assessing the progress of the project. It led WP5 Communication and dissemination, leading the tasks on web presence, dissemination plan and production of dissemination material.

 

Project profile

CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES is about the participation of citizens in research on digital Cultural Heritage (CH) and humanities, and its main outcome is this Roadmap.
The engagement of Europe's citizens in scientific research has just started to be exploited, thus
representing an important opportunity for improving European competitiveness. The case of digital CH and humanities is particularly relevant because:

  • Humanities play a major cross-cutting role in the evolvement of European research and innovation – as it is acknowledged also in the Horizon 2020 Programme of the EC;
  • CH as such is an area in which citizens are particularly active (recording, cataloguing, and discussing things on an individual, group/voluntary/amateur basis);
  • The potential of broadening e-Infrastructure deployment to support the participation of citizens in research activities is not yet fully explored, although holding a potentially strong impact on social cohesion and job development, both aspects being important drivers in the European policy context;

The project started with an analysis of the requirements and needs that existing experiences of
citizen science demonstrated. This activity was carried out through a rich programme of focus
group meetings, whose results were discussed in the international workshop held in Valletta in
November 2014.
A Registry of Resources was developed gathering information about existing initiatives in the
domain of citizen science, which can be used as reference and inspiration for new projects and
which remain as a legacy of the CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES project after the end of the EC funding period.
A study about a shared multidisciplinary Strategic Research Agenda has been conducted in order to correlate scientific objectives with the steps indicated in the Roadmap.

The Roadmap has been validated by a Pilot study in Ireland and two Case Studies in UK whose results have been analysed to extract knowledge, lessons learnt and best practice.

PROMOTER's role

Promoter plays the role of Technical Coordinator, supporting the Coordinating partner in monitoring and assessing the progress of the project.
It also co-leads the WP4 and leads the tasks on dissemination plan, impact assessment and sustainability.

 

Project profile

Europeana Space aims to increase and enhance the creative industries’ use of digital cultural content and Europeana by delivering a range of resources to support their engagement. The use of content is still limited by factors including the issue of IPR status and the need for robust business models that demonstrate the potential for exploitation of available content. In addressing these problems, Europeana Space brings together high-level expertise from the European creative industries, technology-based enterprises, the cultural heritage sector and higher education.
Europeana Space will build 3 Spaces, the Technical, Content and Innovation Spaces: physical and virtual environments to enable the creative re-use of cultural content. They will contain online guidelines and tools, a technical framework; a platform for IPR management; hackathons and workshops to inspire and support content providers, technology partners, creators and industry bodies to develop new content-based services and applications; and incubation/mentoring by business experts to stimulate and support creative entrepreneurship. 6 Pilots and 3 Demonstrators will present innovative models of content use in interactive TV, photography, dance, games, publishing and cultural heritage. A wide-ranging dissemination and sustainability programme will ensure Europe-wide penetration of the Best Practices developed and shared through the project.
Europeana Space will address all sectors of the creative industries, from content providers to producers, exhibitors, artists and makers of cultural/creative content, publishers, broadcasters, telecoms and distributors of digital content. Its impact will be significantly increased use of Europeana and new opportunities for employment and economic growth within the creative industries through continuing development of innovative applications and services based on Europe’s rich digital cultural resources.
