Presentation of the call
The Digital Heritage call supported well-defined, transnational, interdisciplinary and collaborative research and development projects that maximize the value and impact of research outcomes by promoting the exchange with policymakers, businesses and commercial enterprises, the broader heritage sector, voluntary and community groups and the general public.
Digital Heritage is an important emerging field of inter-disciplinary research in which a wide range of digital methods are applied to the creation, exploration, study, understanding, interpretation, presentation, dissemination of tangible and intangible heritage, whether digitized or born-digital. It also includes the use of digital methodologies for the conservation and protection of heritage and for promoting the community engagement with, and use of, heritage.
A project proposal had to comprise of at least three research teams, each based in an eligible institution in a different country participating in the Digital Heritage Call.
In order to help researchers or interested partners to find partners in other countries and organisations, an email group (called JPICH-DIGITALHERITAGECALL) had been set up: JPICH DH Partner Matching Tool
