ICEDIG Opening Conference
ICEDIG Opening Conference – “Transforming natural sciences collections for the digital age”will take place in Helsinki, Finland, on the 6 March 2018.
Hosted by the Finnish Museum of Natural History Luomus, the consortium of the Horizon 2020 ICEDIG project “Innovation and consolidation for large scale digitisation of natural heritage” invites you to participate in this event. ICEDIG supports DiSSCo, the new pan-European Research Infrastructure initiative with the vision to position European natural science collections at the centre of data-driven scientific excellence and innovation in environmental research. In combination, these projects will help tackle the complex challenge of digitising natural science collections and providing access to collections data.
We would like to seize the opportunity to build long lasting relationships with representatives from potential industrial partners, national and European political bodies, the research community and society. At the conference we will present the ICEDIG work programme and show how the wide group of stakeholders can contribute but also how to benefit from the project and its results.
The event is being organised in close proximity to the Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries Conference, taking place on the 7-9 March 2018, also in Helsinki, to showcase the potential collaborations between the two domains.
