Erasmus+ European Project
Bringing cultural Heritage to the Digital Era; Unifying Past, Present and Future!
ARCH is an intercultural project that aims at the collaboration between organizations and institutions in order to improve students’ digital and cultural literacy skills exploiting each country’s cultural heritage.
Bringing cultural heritage to the digital era can lead to new ways towards the access, conservation and promotion of European cultural resources.
The Kick-off Meeting of the Erasmus+ project “ARCH — Bringing Cultural Heritage to the Digital Era; Unifying Past, Present and Future” successfully took place physically on November 10-11, 2022 at the ENAE Business School in Murcia, Spain. It was organized by the project coordinator, Fundacion Universidad Empresa de la Region de Murcia (FUERM), marking the official launch of the project’s activities. Partners that could not attend the Kick off meeting physically had the opportunity to participate online.
The meeting was inaugurated with a welcome video by FUERM CEO Miguel López González de León and presentation of FUERM, giving the opportunity to all project partners to present themselves and the organizations they represent.
The Kick-off Meeting allowed partners to discuss the project procedures, establishing the guidelines for a successful and effective implementation. A review and in-depth examination of all project activities and deliverables set in the project proposal were made.
