ENERGIC OD presented at the Summer Course “Digital Preservation and Continuity in the Cultural Context and Electronic Administration”
07 July 2017
ENERGIC OD project and two of its applications (GeoPan Pro and GeoPan Light’s instance Zaragoza Histórica) were presented last 7th July at the “Digital Preservation and Continuity in the Cultural Context and Electronic Administration” summer course organized by Universidad de Zaragoza.
The objectives of the course were to raise awareness of digital preservation issues and present models and technological solutions to address digital preservation and continuous access to historic information stored in archives in digital format. The course was attended by 30 students, most of them archivists in active working in public administrations.
In one of the sessions of this course, the ENERGIC OD project was presented, together with the two applications that have focused in putting into value digital historical information: GeoPan Pro and the Zaragoza instance of GeoPan Light (Zaragoza Histórica). The apps were very well received, and students had the opportunity of using and evaluating them.
A new meeting was called at the final stage of our project for reporting on its current state and next steps to be taken in light of the final review.
This project meeting will be focusing on the final business plan and model for ENERGIC-OD, the Virtual Hubs and applications. All partners will be involved in determining the final exploitation framework of ENERGIC-OD in the post-funding phase, and the agreement reached will be reported in the final version of Deliverable 8.3. In particular, licensing arrangements for VH technology will be discussed. Consortium partners will report on and plan its remaining exploitation activities. TRI will report on the GEO Business participation fallout.
The technical sessions will include: a) demonstration of status and presentation of planned activities towards the establishment of a pan European Virtual Hub as requested by the reviewers and PO, and the integration with the crawler module; and b) demonstration of current status and presentation of planned activities for the finalization of the selected cross-border and pan European apps.
Attention will be devoted to the organization of the final conference and to all future dissemination activities. To ensure the highest project visibility and impact, a list of particularly important events that the Consortium should attend will be examined.
