8,1 miljoner till projekt om datadriven innovation – The Data Innovation Arena

Medea vid Malmö högskola har tillsammans med ett större projektkonsortium beviljats drygt 8 miljoner kronor för projektet The Data Innovation Arena. Detta inom ramen för innovationsmyndigheten Vinnovas utlysning Utmaningsdriven innovation. Med offentliga och användargenererade data ska projektet utveckla tjänster som ska göra kollektivtrafiken mer attraktiv. Partners är bland andra Skånetrafiken och Malmö stad.

Invitation: Seminar on Open Data and Cultural Archiving

Data related to cultural archiving, as well as content itself, is increasingly made available through open formats and licenses. This gives opportunities for growing engagement from the public. However, the open data landscape is complex, involving cultural, critical, political, and technical aspects, which need further exploration.

The Living Archives project at Malmö University invites you to take part in an all day seminar to explore these topics. The day begins with presentations by both invited speakers and researchers in the project. The afternoon continues with breakout discussions on topics related to open data and cultural archiving, such as Augmented Reality, Life-Logging, and Urban Gardening/Farming.

Time: March 26, 9:30-15:00 (talks start at 10:00)
Place: Medea, Malmö University (map)
