This month, The Team will be celebrating the 12-month anniversary since the very first do.CAKE morning last July. Partners The Hive, Birmingham Museums Trust and The Library of Birmimgham will be joining us to share their experience of working with the Digital Heritage Demonstrator Project.
Anthony Hughes, Project Manager for Smart Culture based here at do.collaboration is coordinating the first phase of data collection through a series of interviews and will introduce an online questionnaire to the group.
SmartCulture is a European project that is tasked with building on and developing future collaborations & research work between those working in ICT sectors and creative and cultural industries. These include heritage sites, museums and archive collections. One of the main purposes of the project is to promote greater use of digital interactive technology, engaging and enhancing audiences and participation in culture/ heritage. It will further investigate the current level of investment, policy, funding and development in this area of work. It works across 8 European partner organisation / regions and will look at current research, models of good practice and future developmental (Supply & Demand) in this area, ultimately making recommendations to the European Commission for future investment which will enable our region to benefit.
Nicola Bryant from Digital Birmingham will be presenting Birmingham’s Smart City Roadmap; what it means to you and how you can influence and shape its development.
Smarter Birmingham- where enterprise and social collaboration thrive
Digital Birmingham is taking an early lead to pioneer Birmingham’s transition to a global Smart City. Extensive research and our work with other European cities shows the advantages to be gained from Smart approaches to ensure that cities are optimised for economic activity, energy resilience, environmental impact and improved quality of life. Smart is a response to issues such as increasing and ageing populations, unemployment and climate change. It creates effective services that are responsive to customer needs.
Alongside this, the rate of technology growth and its pervasiveness into everyday life in an increasingly digitally connected world have the opportunity to provide us with greater intelligence to manage our cities better and empower citizens and business to do more.
Given the wide and diverse range of academics, businesses, students and Heritage organisations working collaboratively on the DHD project, we will be hosting free monthly “cake” (Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange) mornings to showcase current developments, discuss funding opportunities and tackle current challenges. Plus - there will be cake!
