A video recording of the “Cultural Heritage & Data” symposium (Day One) held on December 5-6, 2016 at the Library of Congress is now available online and embedded below. If/when video from Day Two of the symposium becomes available we well add it to this post.
The EU and the USA have highly productive and excellence-driven research and innovation systems. Combining the strengths of each landscape based on a balanced transatlantic Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) partnership of equals offers great potential and contributes to a shared goal of tackling societal challenges and boosting economic competitiveness.
This scientific cooperation includes Heritage Science as a cross-cutting domain embracing a wide range of research disciplines that support the diverse aspects of tangible and intangible cultural heritage preservation, conservation, interpretation and management.
The joint US/EU task force established in 2015 to seek concrete areas of collaborative research will celebrate the outcome of this transatlantic dialogue in Heritage Science during this two-day International Symposium.
The International Symposium is being co-sponsored by the IPERION CH project, the Library of Congress, National Gallery of Art, George Washington University, the Museum Conservation Institute of the Smithsonian Institution, and the EUNIC network (the National Institutes for Culture from the member states of the European Union in Washington DC).
