Portrait of Lars Rogstad

Lars Rogstad

Senior Advisor Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage Cultural Heritage

I am educated at Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and I hold a Master of Science in Ecology and Environmental Economics. I have for several years been working with electronic dissemination of cultural heritage data, since 2006 in the City Archives of Oslo, and from 2012 in Arts Council Norway.

My work at Arts Council Norway centers around opening up the digital collections of Norwegian museums collections. An important tool in this work is Norvegiana, which can be seen as the Norwegian equivalent on the national level to Europeana. By the end of 2015 there were about 6.8 million objects in Norvegiana, from more than 300 data providers. From Norvegiana cultural heritage data can be used and developed by others to create new services for business, tourism, and education, or exported into the international arena, such as Europeana.
