10 November 2022
Between November 9-10, 2022, the “Conference on Heritage Innovation Technology / Conferința privind Tehnologia Inovației Patrimoniului", organized by the Ministry of Development, Public Works and Administration, within the activities carried out by the Interreg Danube Transnational Program, within the European Union Strategy for the Danube Region, priority area 3 - Culture, Tourism and Contacts between people.
The conference was held #hybrid and aimed to discuss issues of common interest in the field of culture and cultural heritage, to share and disseminate innovative approaches and best practices for the development of public policies.
Diana Andone, director of CeLparticipated in this conference as a speaker, where she presented the Spotlight Heritage Timișoara project as an example of good practice, through which she wanted to convey the message that innovation and digitization are #key tools for promoting cultural heritage and a way to make it accessible in an open informational space.
The initiator of Spotlight Heritage Timișoara presented the idea of implementing this project and the stages of development, talking about how the status of European Capital of Culture of the city of Timișoara 2023 played an essential role in promoting the innovative use and management of cultural and/or digital heritage.
Through this conference, it was very important to capitalize on the fact that innovation and digitization can also increase the valorization of less visible cultural heritage, including through sustainable tourism approaches.
Spotlight Heritage Timișoara is a digital cultural initiative of the Polytechnic University of Timișoara, in partnership with the National Museum of Banat, which overlays the physical heritage in a digital format, by using the latest generation technologies (web, mobile, AR, VR and XR). The project is co-financed by the Municipality of Timișoara, through the Project Center, Timiș County Council and is part of the series of projects dedicated to the cultural program - Timișoara European Cultural Capital 2023.
