Through the new EIT ‘Culture & Creativity’ innovation community, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) will unite businesses, higher education organisations and research centres in the Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries (CCSI).
Time Machine was a project funded under Horizon 2020 Fet Flagships call programme. The project developed large-scale digitisation of cultural heritage and computing infrastructure, mapping millennia of European historical and geographical evolution.
Marking the end of the first year of the Time Machine project, a conference in Brussels last week outlined the exciting potential for the future of the initiative. Europeana Executive Director Harry Verwayen was there to discuss how Europeana’s continued collaboration in Time Machine can provide the building blocks for new applications of digital cultural heritage.
Europeana has been a partner in the Time Machine project since its beginnings. Now, Europeana and Time Machine have signed a statement of collaboration to work together to explore opportunities to further their partnership, building upon existing synergies between the work and ambition of the two organisations.
