Do not miss the opportunity to participate in the Space4Culture conference, taking place in Matera, Italy, on the 15-16 October 2018 on the issue “Space4Culture: satellite services for historical and creative cities”!
Culture is what allows us to understand and interact with our world. Europe’s cultural and creative sectors represent around 4.5% of European gross domestic product and 3.8% of the EU workforce. These sectors have proven more resilient than others to economic downturn, fostering innovation and positively impacting other sectors. Nevertheless, despite their potential, the cultural and creative sectors remain underexploited and at risk, both from an environmental and human perspective.
Satellite applications can support such sectors and provide new tools to better safeguard, promote and reinvent our culture. That’s why EURISY, together with the Basilicata region, NEREUS, the TeRN Consortium and the Italian Space Agency, organise an event to discuss how operational satellite services can be used to better manage historical cities, safeguard cultural heritage and boost creativity.
These two days will see the participation of representatives from the European Commission, space agencies, cities, researchers and artists interested in using technology to sustain culture.
This event is taking place in the run-up to the 2019 Matera European Capital for Culture celebrations and with the patronage of the UNESCO, as part of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage.
