The RICHES resources website has been developed in the framework of RICHES, a project co-funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration. It has been designed to make available to the public the main results of the RICHES project.

The aim of this website is to present an overview of the most important results achieved so far in RICHES.

RICHES’ research fields and activities produce a series of outcomes, which can be classified in the following two main areas:

  • Resources related to RESEARCH, which include: scientific publications; co-creation practices and toolkits; a taxonomy aimed at outlining the conceptual field of digital technologies applied to cultural heritage; an interactive showcase presenting case studies related to the status of digital heritage mediated by memory institutions, such as libraries and museums, allowing interested users to contribute other relevant suggestions; other case study reports such as virtual performances; data and statistics.
  • Resources related to POLICIES, which include: policy reports and recommendations to support the development of new policy for enhancing cultural heritage; foresight studies to support the development of strategic agendas and joint programming in Europe; reports of the Policy Seminars organised by the project; information about the networking activities and how to join the RICHES network; list of useful links to European, National and International policies on cultural heritage.

Finally, the ALL DOCUMENTS section contains all the documents that have been uploaded on the RICHES resources website. You can browse them through the top menu or using the search filters on the right frame. The order by which the documents are displayed is by publication date, starting with the more recent.
