EU-H2020 Marie S. Curie PhD Fellowship on the field of Enrichment of 3D volumetric objects with Metadata and Semantics
Organizing institution(s): Cyprus University of Technology
Location of fellowship: Limassol
Cultural Heritage (CH) is an integral element of Europe, vital for the creation of a common European identity and one of the greatest assets for steering Europe’s social, economic development and job creation. However, the current research training activities in CH are fragmented and mostly designed as single-discipline, failing to cover the whole lifecycle of Digital Cultural Heritage (DCH) research, which is by nature a multi-disciplinary and intersectorial agenda. The CHANGE project will train a new generation of early stage researchers towards a common goal, namely the assessment of changes in tangible cultural heritage objects and their monitoring in the atmosphere and/or during their conservation treatment, using multimodal imaging techniques to complement more traditional analytical techniques. Their research will consist in optimizing capture of data and their analysis, visualisation and management, to ensure a better documentation and long-term preservation of our common European cultural heritage. This work will be carried out within an interdisciplinary environment involving 5 CH and 4 ICT beneficiary institutions as well as 9 CH, ICT and industrial partners from 8 EU countries.
