On 18 October, the Policy Learning Platform is hosting the first episode of the Cultural Routes webinar series! Join us from 14:00 to 15:30 CET, to learn about the digitalisation of heritage.
Europe’s cultural and natural heritage is as rich and diverse as are its member states. It comprises natural, built and archaeological sites, museums, monuments, artworks, historic cities, literary and musical work, and is an important element of social life, as well as economic development.
Unprecedented opportunities enabled by technologies, such as data collection, AI, 3D object rendering and XR bring cultural heritage sites back to life. The sector’s transformation has led to easier online access to cultural material for everybody. This webinar will introduce three different approaches from the United Kingdom, Greece and Netherlands.
