Portrait of Erik Buelinckx

Erik Buelinckx

Network Association Member
Head of Photo Collection, Library and Digitisation Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage Belgium, BE Other

I hold degrees in Art History and in Library and Information Science, and I work since 2000 at the Royal Institute of Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA), Brussels, Belgium, where I am now responsible for the photographic inventory, library, databases and digitisation and for national and international projects.
During multiple European projects we are contributing 145.371 items (with a multitude of photograph) to Europeana, and this for a rather small institution. I'm also a member of PhotoConsortium. Other non-Europeana linked projects I’m involved with are Iperion CH (scientific research on cultural heritage) and Preforma (conformance checking of file formats for long-term preservation).
