International Network for a Digital Cultural Heritage e-Infrastructure

International Network for a Digital Cultural Heritage e-Infrastructure

Objective

The INDICATE project will coordinate policy and best practice regarding the use of e-Infrastructures for digital cultural heritage in countries all around the Mediterranean.
The project will establish and nurture a network of common interest made up of experts and researchers in all the relevant fields, whose sustainability will be planned on a long term beyond the project duration. The network will share experience, promote standards and guidelines, seek harmonisation of best practice and policy and act as a conduit for knowledge transfer from countries with more experience of e-Infrastructures-enabled e-culture to those who are just beginning to investigate this area.
The project will be rooted in the reality of research pilots and case studies which will act as exemplars and demonstrators of the issues and the processes which are relevant to establishing cultural initiatives on the e-Infrastructures platform. The results will inform a wide-reaching dissemination work-package, including two major public best practice deliverables, one international conference, three technical workshops and one policy workshop.
The project builds on a wealth of experience in effective international coordination of digitisation, digital cultural heritage and e-Infrastructures-enabled culture. It takes full cognisance and advantage of e-Infrastructures and cultural projects which have gone before and will actively seek interaction and synergies with other projects in this area. The impact on international collaboration and on digital cultural heritage in the Mediterranean region will be substantial.
