EUreka3D is a project funded by the Digital Europe Programme of the European Union, and coordinated by Photoconsortium, to support the digital transformation of the cultural heritage sector. Across 24 months, EUreka3D will be offering capacity building and training, and new services, to Cultural Heritage Institutions facing the challenge of advancing in the digitization effort, especially in 3D digitization, access, storage, sharing.
The kick-off meeting is organized in Pisa on 23-34 January 2023.
Partners are PHOTOCONSORTIUM, Coordinator, Italy; Cyprus University Of Technology (CUT), Cyprus; Centre for Image Research and Diffusion (CRDI) Girona, Spain; Bibracte, France; Museo Della Carta Di Pescia, Italy; Europeana Foundation, The Netherlands; EGI Foundation, The Netherlands and affiliated partner Academic Computer Center CYFRONET AGH, Poland.
The project will offer a capacity building and knowledge programme, next to services and resources developed in a piloting action based on smart technical infrastructures and tools, also registered on the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). This virtual space will allow cultural heritage institutions to use storage and computing resources to manage their 3D assets, which will give smaller institutions an affordable and simpler way to digitise, model, manage and share 3D records.
Additionally, the project will aggregate and publish a variety of high-quality 2D and 3D digital records in Europeana.eu website as well as offer clear examples for the use and reuse of the cultural content in neighbouring areas such as tourism and education. Finally, it will support institutions by developing training material for 3D digitisation, data processing and publication on Europeana.eu as well as organising training activities to support cultural heritage institutions with the use of the virtual space.
