Description

This workshop aims to explore opportunities for developing community and digital strategies for the protection, conservation and recovery of Cultural Heritage. It will take an expanded and interdisciplinary approach to the research by exploring how digital technologies and/or methodologies for their development can support and empower communities to safeguard, protect and recover their cultural heritage and related public institutions from threats such as decays and destruction due to neglect, looting, trafficking, vandalism, natural or man-made disasters.

This scheme uses funds allocated to the University by Research England as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) specifically for supporting activities that will be directly and primarily of benefit to the challenges of developing countries on the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list.
