NET Heritage is a three year EU funded project. It will produce a web portal on inventory (or observatory) with research on the Protection of Tangible Cultural Heritage. The portal content will be used to inform EU directives.
14 EU countries are developing different elements of the observatory. The UK work package is developing the technical specification for the work. This is being led by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. I sit on the UK stakeholder group.
The trial observatory will be launched in November. We have provided some sample content for this. The task after the November launch will be to populate the observatory before the project finishes in October 2011. MGS will be contacting key partners about the project and how to upload content after this date.
