Working together

The 7th International Conference
Under the patronage of the German Commission for UNESCO
Sharing Heritage – European Culture Heritage Year 2018

Digitization could enable access to our cultural heritage and thus make an important contribution to the knowledge society of our future. Digitization facilitates and promotes networking and cooperation across institutional and national boundaries and combines sectors, which had been divided so far. But what are the prerequisites for good cooperation? When does it work? And where and why does it fail? International experts from cultural institutions, academia, business, society and politics will explore the opportunities and limitations of cooperation when it comes to making cultural heritage accessible in the digital world.

German speeches will be translated simultaneously into English.
