Thanks to the advances we have today, we can conserve, know, consult and also disseminate cultural heritage, although it is very important to know what its socio-economic and technological effects may be, something that can be measured thanks to an innovative project called MAXICULTURE .
This project provides different tools to be able to correctly measure the effects, allowing a better use of ICT in favor of all cultural heritage. Two of the important points of this project is that it has a tool dedicated to evaluation and another a community platform.
According to George Ioannidis, director of the IN2 company, in charge of developing the technology on which the MAXICULTURE platform is based, in this project there is room for infinite options such as tool development, book scanning and support for collaboration in museums and libraries among others.
Thanks to the unconditional support of the European Union as well as different companies and entities, today this project is a reality, being able to deal with different projects dedicated to cultural heritage.
Have been around 600,000 euros with which they have counted on the part of the EU, which has allowed this platform to generate different collections of entries based on the fact that the projects are published on social media, archives and audiovisual media and the photographs that are uploaded to the web.
In this way, all those projects that have had or have funding from the EC, already have an effective and very useful platform where they can present their results. But it is also highlighted that this tool can be used by investors, who can access information on some of the most modern developments that have appeared within the field of what is digital culture.
It is noted that many other projects such as Mymeedia or STOM, can continue to collect media inputs as well as presentations, conferences, videos, photos, audio files and a long etcetera.
As Ioannidis himself stated, “This community platform has a large number of entries about events in which different projects financed with funds from the European Commission participate and in MAXICULTURE we have the great opportunity to experiment in terms of new ways of relating many of the activities that are carried out in different events”.
After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
