Workshop on innovation policies for Cultural Heritage Institutions [Budapest, 10 July 2015]

The European project CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES is organising a second workshop on Citizen Science in Budapest, 10th of July. KU Leuven was host to the first workshop that presented a first draft of the 'Roadmap for broadening e-Infrastructure deployment to support citizen researchers in digital culture'.

Using the valuable input received during and after the Leuven workshop, a second version of the Roadmap has just been released. This will be the basis for the discussion that we will continue to carry out with our community, both online and in the occasion of the new Workshop in Budapest on 10 July 2015.

You can download and provide input on the Roadmap on the website: 

During the Budapest Workshop both project represenatives and external experts are invited to present interesting cases on Citizen science projects, infrastructure and policy. Roxanne Wyns from LIBIS, KU Leuven will present as keynote some successful examples of citizen science projects.
