NET-HERITAGE Observatory web portal launched

After months of preparation, the trial site for the NET-HERITAGE Observatory is now live.

For those of you who haven’t heard about this project before, NET-HERITAGE is a three year EU funded project. It has produced a web observatory (or web portal) with research on cultural heritage, and is intended for a wide audience of researchers, practitioners, funding agencies, policymakers and anyone with an interest in European cultural heritage. Alison has been representing MGS on the UK stakeholder group, led by AHRC.

We’ve submitted some content and now we’re publicising the observatory so that people are aware of its existence and the information contained on it. We encourage you to take a look at the site and see what information it can offer you.

There is also an opportunity for you to provide content. The focus of the research being added to the observatory is the “Protection of Tangible Cultural Heritage”. So, if you are aware of any research in this area, and would like to make a contribution to the observatory, click on the following link to visit the NET-HERITAGE Observatory web portal.
