This “Digital Heritage” call is designed to generate new, research-based knowledge to promote the sustainable use and management of cultural heritage and so to contribute to the development on the society. The research topics on which the “Digital Heritage” Call is focused have been drawn from areas identified in the Strategic Research Agenda for the JPI “Cultural Heritage and Global Change”.

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 and presentation 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.

Research proposals on “Digital Heritage” are not expected to focus on a single topic, but instead are invited to consider approaches combining multiple topics.

The call will support projects across the following topics:

  • Engagements with Digital Heritage
  • Communities and Digital Heritage
  • Safeguarding Digital Heritage
