FutureTDM Workshop II - European Parliament event on text and data mining

29 March 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Using machine technology to sift through big data can help us further our understanding of the arts, business, science and beyond.

This provides an opportunity for economic and cultural growth. Yet in the EU, we aren’t doing as much of this text and data mining as in other parts of the world.

For the past 18 months, EU funded Project FutureTDM has been exploring why. Building on our findings (presented at our first workshop) we are now producing policy recommendations and guidelines to help improve EU uptake of TDM.

We will present these along with our latest report on the economics of TDM at the European Parliament workshop on 29 March. After the panel discussion, we will hold an informal session where stakeholders can provide further input on policy specific to their sector.

Policy seminar: Cultural heritage policies for a troubled Europe - Proposals from the CulturalBase Social Platform

31 January 2017, Bozar, Brussels

Europe is in trouble. The Great Recession has heavily hit Southern Europe and has polarized the Continent between North and South. Growing nationalism in many EU countries and the increasing division of national societies provoke a tendency to fragmentation. Racism and xenophobia are also on the rising nearly everywhere. The crisis is deep and manifold and there are not simple remedies for it. But some of the most important European troubles are cultural in nature and others, like the economic ones, can be fruitfully connected to culture and cultural development. Therefore, cultural policy presumably can play a significant role in facing the current situation. The European Year of Cultural Heritage will offer a strategic opportunity for highlighting the benefits of acting on this field.

This policy seminar organized by CulturalBase aims to contribute to clarify the path that cultural heritage policies should follow for better addressing the challenges that Europe is confronting nowadays.
