riches policy seminarThe Policy Seminar of the RICHES project "NEW HORIZONS FOR CULTURAL HERITAGE – Recalibrating relationships: bringing cultural heritage and people together in a changing Europe", organised in cooperation with the Project Officer, will be held at the Nowotny Auditorium, Covent Garden building of the European Research Council, 16 Place Rogier, Brussels, on 19 October 2015, from 2 pm to 5 pm. Scope of the seminar is to discuss how the project can provide insights to support evidence-based policymaking in Europe.

The seminar will comprise political updates by representatives from the European Parliament and the European Commission, the presentation of policy recommendations from the RICHES project and a Round Table discussion involving major stakeholders.
In this light, the programme of the seminar will offer to participants the opportunity to challenge institutional points of view with some practical results of the research conducted by RICHES, with particular regard to the following themes:

  • the need to develop and to use a common taxonomy,
  • innovation in copyright frameworks and open access to data and information,
  • co-creation practices that offer the cultural heritage sector innovative approaches to breaking down barriers.

A large space in the programme will be devoted to engaging the audience in dialogue and debate.

Participation in the event is by invitation only. All those with an interest in the Seminar may follow the preparatory work and access the results through the RICHES project website. The results of the Seminar will be reproduced and made available online for all interested audiences.
