Digital Curation - the importance of the digital curator and their training

Next Tuesday, 14 May 2024, the event "Digital Curatorship - the importance of the digital curator and their training" will take place. Organised as part of the DCbox project, the event aims to promote the sharing of experiences and facilitate dialogue on the subject of the digitisation of Cultural Heritage, with a specific focus on the emerging professional profile of Digital Curator.

The meeting is open to academics and researchers, students, museum and cultural technology professionals and specialists in digitisation and virtual reality, as well as anyone interested in exploring the opportunities that digitisation can offer for the enhancement of culture. Thanks to the intervention of experts and professionals in the field, it will be possible to analyse different points of view and explore the link between technologies and cultural heritage through the various essays. It will also be beneficial for the students as it will be the moment to present the prototype projects developed by the scholarship students.

This is the final meeting of the DCBox project in Portugal - Digital Curator Training and Tool Box, funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus Plus programme "Cooperation Partnerships in Higher Education", coordinated by the Distori research group at the Università Politecnica delle Marche and involving the University of Córdoba (Spain), the University of Nis (Serbia), the Cyprus Institute (Cyprus), the Lusófona University of Lisbon (Portugal), Sinergia Consulenze Srl (Italy) and UNIMED-Union of Mediterranean Universities (Italy).

The event will take place on 14 May 2024, between 3pm and 6pm, in the Salão Nobre of Lourinhã Town Hall. Entries must be made by 12 May via this link:
