Event: An Expedition to European Digital Cultural Heritage

The Austrian Presidency of the European Union invites to the international conference on the digitisation of cultural heritage:

An Expedition to European Digital Cultural Heritage
Collecting, Connecting – and Conserving?

21-22 June, 2006 | Salzburg, Austria

The conference starts from the practical challenges at collecting, connecting and digitally conserving cultural treasures and scientific information, and invites for an expedition to the vision of a common European digital cultural heritage space.

The conference thus builds on the efforts of the European Union to make the diversity of the European cultural heritage accessible to all citizens and to preserve it for future generations. It aims at contributing to the implementation of the Dynamic Action Plan for the EU co-ordination of digitisation activities, and at fostering discussion on the i2010 initiative for a European Digital Library.

Target groups are experts from cultural heritage institutions, public administrations, EU institutions and the economy. The conference is an event of the Austrian presidency of the European Union, organised by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Culture and co-financed by the European Commission.

Dates: 21 June (10:00 a.m. - 5.20 p.m.) – 22 June (9:00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m.)
Venue: Residenz zu Salzburg
