Dear Time Machine friends!

We are kicking off our Time Machine 2019 conference this week from 10-11 October at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden! Our programme includes distinguished speakers from Europe’s leading science, technology and cultural institutions who will discuss the potential of cultural heritage data for education, creative and media industries, entertainment, urban planning, policy-making and more.

Furthermore, there will be an exceptional panel where representatives from different Directorates General of the European Commission as well as major European initiatives will discuss about a European view on ICT and Cultural Heritage. The overarching idea is to discuss the current situation of research and innovation in the field of ICT and Cultural Heritage, elaborate the challenges faced by Europe and its citizens and assess future perspectives for research and innovation, including e.g. sustainable cultural tourism and the legacy of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
Panellists are:
  • Mihai Christian Brasoveanu (European Commission, Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology),
  • Anne Grady (European Commission, Directorate-General for Education and Culture),
  • Pascal Lievaux (Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage) and
  • Harry Verwayen (Europeana Foundation)
Make sure to check out the conference website for more details and follow/use #TimeMachine19 on Twitter to join and boost the conversation!

We are delighted to provide you with additional updates in this newsletter on our most recent and upcoming activities and news – as, for instance, our newly established network of Time Machine ambassadors.

During the past few weeks, we invited you to co-shape the Time Machine Organisation (membership categories, constitution, election of the board) through a series of online surveys. Final decisions of the results from our surveys will be shared at the pre-Time Machine 2019 conference, the Time Machine CSA meeting on 9 October.
