iHERITAGE Team gathers in Egypt to review project progress - only steps away from improved access to UNESCO Sites!
Following the success of the project's second steering committee meeting in Granada last November, the iHERITAGE team is thrilled to announce its third Steering Committee Meeting, which will be held from June 16th to 18th in Alexandria and Cairo, Egypt.
This Steering Committee Meeting will be the project's second in-person meeting, bringing together the majority of partners in person while others who are unable to attend will participate virtually.
The three-day programme will begin on Thursday morning in the heart of Alexandria with an institutional welcome by project partners and hosts from the Confederation of Egyptian European Business Associations and the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, followed by the lead partners from the Sicilian Tourism Department. Ms. Rawda Abdelhady, an expert in intangible cultural heritage, will then lead an informative and engaging Living Labs Session on Intangible Cultural Heritage in Alexandria following the welcome. This will take place in the presence of local stakeholders, press and media who are invited to attend the event, meet the partners and report on the project's development. Later in the day, partners will enjoy a guided tour of Alexandria.
On the second day of the trip, partners will come together to discuss project progress and plan future activities aimed at improving access to a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Mediterranean. Partners will have the opportunity to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Pyramids of Giza on the final day. Visits to UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Granada will enable partners analyse and comprehend the need for the integration of new ICT products, as well as how iHERITAGE will help improve access and interpretation of those sites and many more across the Mediterranean.
The meeting will provide an excellent chance for partners to connect, examine the project's progress and next steps in light of the project's last year of implementation, chart a course for the coming months, and discuss the development of new ICT products to valorize tangible and intangible cultural heritage in the Mediterranean
