15 mill to IPED Project: Cultural Heritage Mediascapes
Cultural Heritage Mediascapes: Innovation in knowledge and communication practices is one of three research projects to be funded by the new KULMEDIA Program at The Research Council of Norway. 19 proposals were submitted.
The project will study key transformations in how knowledge is produced and mediated by experts in museums and archives using digital technologies, as well as the ways in which different publics interact with, contribute to, and learn from this knowledge. The overall aim of Mediascapes is to contribute to research-based policy in the cultural sector that can account for, anticipate, and support future communicative developments and knowledge practices in the field of digital cultural heritage.
In addition to IPED, researchers from IKOS (HF, UiO) the Natural History Museum (UiO), and the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design are partners in the project. Other participants include leading Norwegian architecture firms, and organizations working with biodiversity.
Associate Professor Palmyre Pierroux will lead the project.
