The COST Connect workshop on “Cultural Heritage in the Digital Era” will be an open space for participants to identify and discuss how they can best contribute to structuring this field of cooperation that has shown high potential to create societal impact in Europe.

The aim of the event is twofold: to reduce duplicate research activities and to fight against the fragmentation of the sector by encouraging cooperation among stakeholders and communicating success stories to the relevant end-users.

In order to deliver significant outcomes, COST will invite participants in COST Actions to exchange with other related European research projects (taking into account the broad diversity of funding), relevant representatives of the European Institutions, end-users and partners (especially from the private sector).

The workshop should be seen as the starting point bringing together various disciplines and actors in the field with the aim to create and consolidate European partnerships. By closely involving the end-users, the “COST Connect” event will also highlight and promote the projects’ achievements and support their implementation and exploitation.

“Cultural Heritage in the Digital Era” has the ambition to reduce the societal gap in an area of particular interest for the society at large by discovering, protecting and preserving cultural heritage for a better knowledge of our past and for the benefit of our future generations.
