The Fair of European Innovators in Cultural Heritage – 15-16 November 2018, Brussels, Belgium
The ‘Fair of European Innovators in Cultural Heritage’ is a key event of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH), with more than 300 participants and stakeholders expected from Europe and beyond.
The event aims to support a Cultural Heritage innovation ecosystem through the establishment of a Community of Innovators in Cultural Heritage, investing in people who will make the change, in line with the Lamy report. The Fair will build on the results of the RTD-EAC-CNECT conference in March, wrap-up the contribution of EU R&I to the EYCH and suggest next steps in the field as part of the forthcoming EU Action Plan on Cultural Heritage 2019.
The event will host a demo area with more than 40 breakthrough innovations developed by EU funded R&I projects in the fields of tangible, intangible and digital Cultural Heritage. IT technologies, products, systems and services as well as business and organisational models will be presented in the exhibition. Innovations have been selected through an extensive survey conducted across all RTD funded projects from FP5 to Horizon 2020.
