The DigiTraining Final Event will be a hybrid event, happening in Brussels and online on June 15th. It aims to be a forward-thinking showcase built around the possibilities of Advanced DigiTech and of how the EU’s support can create opportunities for innovation for CHIs across Europe.
It would be the perfect platform in which the general and specific outcomes of the DigiTraining project will be presented giving the opportunity for tailored interactions, with mechanisms to ensure sustainability; to gather stakeholders including CHI beneficiaries, technical coordinators, the Selection Committee, European Commission representatives, along with relevant institutions and stakeholders. Additionally, discussions about the wider implications and impacts of the results for the CHIs and other relevant sectors and industries in Europe will also happen.
The programme for the event includes an audiovisual journey through all the different stages in the training programmes throughout the years; from the most general to the most qualified one, with actual footage and presentations. This journey also includes the beneficiaries of the training’ and trainers’ perspectives and aims for the future around the digitalisation of CHIs in Europe. Additionally, a “Lessons-learned” panel with experts on the field and the qualified programme trainers will be broadcasted for the wider audience, aiming to inspire, educate and give valuable inputs to everyone interested.
Take the opportunity to explore DigiTraining’s journey and lessons learned by joining the live stream from 14:30-17:30 CET here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZ5Vasin14o
We will keep you informed with the updates about our speakers and the programme of the public hybrid showcase. We also welcome you to follow the project’s social media channels where we will keep you posted with the news.
DigiTraining brought together stakeholders on June 15th with a Final Hybrid Showcase held in Brussels. The project will officially end on July 31st and we will continue to disseminate the outcomes of our efforts in the weeks to come.
During the live-streamed showcase, the highly diversified audience witnessed moments of interaction and outcomes along the journey as experienced by selected Beneficiaries of the Specific and Qualified programmes of the project.
We heard from Cristina Veiga-Pires, executive director of the Centro Ciência Viva do Algarve, who underlined the possibilities to move toward an inclusive, immersive, and interdisciplinary understanding of science that the museum has acquired thanks to DigiTraining. As a result of the collaboration with the Consortium, in particular with KHORA, the path towards the knowledge, protection, and safeguarding of the marine environment – especially of seahorses – has been finally narrowed down and will continue its expansion in the future. Among the brilliant initiatives, Cristina Veiga-Pires also mentioned the use of Motion Capture, AR, and VR to create pop-up museums wherever minorities such as gipsies, or fishermen, can be found, so as to spread knowledge and awareness about environmental issues.
We also heard first-hand from Julie Julie Wouwenaar Tovgaard, the digital curator at the Medical Museion, who spoke of her personal growth thanks to the project and who took our audiences on the process undertaken by the museum, in collaboration with KHORA, to build a digital experience around blindness and a number of other eye illnesses. Finally, she envisioned the creation of dedicated rooms to join pathological subjects and scholars, or pregnant women and experts from the medical industry, to make them have private conferences about mental illnesses or pregnancy cravings. These conferences will aim to “mix science and public”, to widen the general public knowledge and trust in science.
We created videos to highlight the work of the 6 beneficiaries who received support under the Specific and Qualified programmes. These brief insights give a view of the beneficiaries’ enriched perspectives, expectations, and plans for the future. Check them out by clicking on the button below!
