New opportunities for the Cultural Heritage

Les e-Infraestructures ofereixen àmplies possibilitats pel sector del patrimoni cultural. Els usuaris tradicionals de la computació en grid i les xarxes nacionals de recerca i educació han estat científics i tecnòlegs de la informació. De cara al futur, la seva aplicació al patrimoni ens permetrà fer front als reptes que el sector planteja de manera innovadora.

L’objectiu del workshop és reunir professionals europeus procedents d’institucions, centres de recerca i empreses vinculades al patrimoni cultural per conèixer l’ús de les e_Infrastructures en aquest àmbit i establir una xarxa d’interès al sector.

Aquest workshop s’organitza en el marc del projecte europeu INDICATE: International Network for a Digital Cultural Heritage e-Infrastructure.
