#S86 Connecting Digital Archives of Intangible Cultural Heritage (DigArch_ICH)

Policy Area Culture – Culture & creative sectors

The main project idea addresses the issue of cooperation among the archives of intangible cultural heritage of the Baltic Sea region. These archives usually depend on various databases, preserving information on cultural heritage on scattered infrastructure. In addition, the data is mainly accessible for researchers and specialists but not for the general public. Therefore, the main project idea is to create one common database for the Baltic Sea region by creating common standards for exchanging and collecting the information in one place.
