  9. 9. Reflective: algemene doelstelling  This call will explore the European diversities and the opportunities they bring, enhancing the understanding of Europe's intellectual and creative basis and paving the way for the European society to critically reflect upon itself, including its historical, cultural and normative roots and the historical trajectories of Europe’s democratic institutions. By addressing the key issues of cultural heritage, identity formation as well as intellectual, artistic, creative and historical legacy of the European Union, this research will contribute to a more resilient, innovative and creative European society pursuing the goal of 'Unity in diversity' whose importance and relevance has been highlighted by the recent financial and economic crisis. It will also foster the potential of digital technologies for facilitating the modelling, analysis, understanding and preservation of European cultural heritage, thus allowing richer interpretations and user experiences, as well as creative re-use.

  11. 11. Reflective 6: Challenge  Specific Challenge: The digital age has revolutionised our habits, behaviours and expectations. The utilisation of digital technologies for research in the humanities and social sciences demonstrates the need for innovation at the service of scholarship and its advancement. The shift to digital is impacting on identities and cultures and transforming the shape of the knowledge that we will transmit to future generations as our legacy. This specific challenge responds to the growing urge to share the wealth of cultural resources, research and knowledge in our collections….. Typ hier de footer 11
  12. 12. Reflective 6: Scope  Scope: Support and promote access to and resue of cultural heritage resources as part of research and innovation. Projects should enable new models and demonstrations of the analysis, interpretation and understanding of Europe's cultural and intellectual history and/or bring cultural content to new audiences in novel ways, through the development of new environments, applications, tools, and services for digital cultural resources in scientific collections, archives, museums, libraries and cultural heritage sites. The developed technologies or services should be generated in the context of humanities research perspectives (identity, culture, questions of place, historical and cultural knowledge) alongside meeting real user needs. They should stimulate cross-border, cross-lingual multi-disciplinary research of Europe's cultural heritage, enabling collaboration, partnerships and coproduction of knowledge across sectors and communities of researchers and users. Proposals should demonstrate appropriate methods of re-using and repurposing digital assets, paving the way for wider exploitation of Europe's cultural resources and boosting innovation.

  13. 13. Reflective 6: Expected impact   Expected impact: Activities under this topic will stimulate new research perspectives for the humanities and social science communities, provide innovative and creative methods for approaching cultural assets, generate tools and resources to access and exploit the rich and diverse European digital cultural heritage in a sustainable way, and promote further its use allowing its reinterpretation towards the development of a new shared culture in Europe. It is expected that these activities will create a viable and sustainable cross-border, cross-lingual and/or cross-sector exploitation of European digital cultural heritage assets by putting into place new networks of researchers, scholars, ICT professionals and specialists of digital heritage.

  16. 16. Augmenting Masterpieces: Interfaces between the Physical and Digital Collection of the Rijksmuseum  The traditional exhibition setting is a spatial viewing arrangement requiring distance, linear sequences and mobile spectators moving from object to object. As a result of this static environment, there are many details that the visitor easily overlooks. Especially since the multiple layers of the artworks can only be accessed through intimate acts that are traditionally forbidden: touching, zooming, tapping, rearranging. Digitising the collection – in 2D photographic archives, databases of information and 3D renderings – offers new ways to bypass these restrictions. For that reason, it has become a common practice to augment museums and exhibitions with virtual counterparts and extensions.   Developing these kinds of interfaces, however, is both a technological and theoretical challenge. How can digital images be integrated into the museum setting? The design challenge of developing new interfaces poses an urgent theoretical question: how do the cultural techniques of intimate gestures touch, zooming, tapping, rearranging - affect the experience of visiting the Rijksmuseum? What affordances of the digital can be employed to augment the original masterpieces? The design firms working on the back-end and front-end development of the website and multimedia tour for Rijksmuseum encounter these questions in practice on a daily basis.   This research project aims at creating a theoretical framework, formulating existing and desired features, testing user experience, developing prototypes of new interfaces for virtual and physical interaction in the museum context and creating a final product to be used for augmented museum tours.  Typ hier de footer 16
  17. 17. Modeling Crowdsourcing for Cultural Heritage • In the past decade, cultural heritage institutions around the world have begun to explore the potential of crowdsourcing: using online platforms to employ the help of audiences in core tasks such as collecting, describing, or curating heritage collections. However, while numerous experiments have taken place, we still lack a comprehensive model for determining which types and methods of crowdsourcing are relevant for which specific purposes. • • M.O.C.C.A. aims to develop such a model. Based on the analysis of two current crowdsourcing projects:Red een portret’ (Save a Portrait) project and the tagging of the Maria Austria photography collection, both hosted at the City Archives of Amsterdam and developed in collaboration with Picturae – the project will balance the various methods of crowdsourcing against the purposes of the heritage institutions, and define a set of conditions and requirements. Such a model is much needed: crowdsourcing will most likely become a permanent feature of the workflow of heritage institutions, creating a need for an efficient employment of these forms of user participation and the further development of the technical and organizational infrastructure it requires. • Typ hier de footer 17
  18. 18. Concert 3.0 • While digital technology is impacting contemporary culture in important ways the classical music concert is one area which has only recently opened up to this kind of innovation. In this collaborative project with the Royal Concertgebouw we will focus on designing and testing strategies that specifically address the offline conditions of common classical concert culture from the listener’s perspective. The project seeks to develop ways for listeners to create digital anchors during concerts and to use those as starting points for a more integrated, protracted and knowledge rich experience. Also, the project looks into ways in which digital humanities approaches can be used to enhance the quality of concert experience by bringing stateof-the-art music research closer to actual listeners.
