CALL FOR PAPERS, POST-CONFERENCE SYMPOSIUM

28 September, Dubrovnik


The Useful Heritage

Efficiency and excellence in the public memory sector

Our claim is that all heritage organisations and institutions (museums, conservation, libraries, archives, hybrid and cyber institutions, heritage actions and networks) continue to demonstrate a constant convergence of theories and practices and the need for a common science. This science in the making is a cohesion factor for the many diverse heritage occupations which each have their own theories (e.g. Museology, Archivistics, Librarianship, Computer science etc.).

This Call for papers is in fact a plea for like-minded sympathizers and allies to join us in the project of a future grand profession, uniting all our heritage occupations in a concerted effort to turn our collective public memories into a Useful Heritage.

Deadline is April 15th 2014!

Content Award Vienna on Tour in Brussels

EMF blogspot - Tue, 28/01/2014 - 19:07
The representation of Vienna hosted the "Content Award Vienna on Tour" on 22 January 2014. The winners of the 2013 awards gave a vivid insight into digital content productions. Together with Belgian counterparts, they entertained the audience with hands-on tools and amazing films as teasers for...you have to watch it. At the end, a (very) young Ausrtian company presented their Tagtool, a collaborative, creative tool, and the public could test how easy creativity can be. Load down the brochure and have a look at all the creative people around you!

InfoDay for Creative Industries & Cultural Heritage - presentations on-line

EMF blogspot - Tue, 28/01/2014 - 18:48
The Info Day of Creative Content & Cultural Heritage was held on 23 January 2014 in Luxembourg. The creative community flocked to the Jean Monnet Building to hear what Horizon 2020 has on offer for their potential projects. The presentations gave a good insight on what is expected from potential proposal, and pointed out differences to FP7 (e.g. clear market-driven approach for the support of SMEs in Call 18; the weighting of criterion 2 "impact" for Innovation Actions etc.). But it could not hide the disappointment over the relatively low budget available. More info and all presentations can be found on the InfoDay webpage.
