CulturalBase Major Stakeholder Conference

CulturalBase Major Stakeholder Conference

The CulturalBase social platform aims to identify and analyse some of the main debates and controversies around culture, in particular in relation to Heritage and European Identities. it aims to bring academic researchers, stakeholders and practitioners together to reach the following objectives:

  • To make an extensive analysis of the research literatures and policy programmes in the general field of cultural heritage and European identities.
  • To identify main research issues and policy programmes in this field and to contrast between the kind of research done and the policies developed.
  • To produce general overviews on the research priorities and opportunities in relation with cultural heritage and European identities from three basic analytic perspectives: cultural memory, cultural inclusion and cultural creativity.
  • To develop a shared view within the social platform on the more important and policy relevant research issues in this field for Europe in the coming years and the best way to address them.
  • To produce strategic research agendas on cultural heritage and European identities from the three aforementioned analytic perspectives stemming from the shared views.
  • To produce general policy guidelines in this domain from these same perspectives, especially in relation with information systems and research policy.

The Major Stakeholder Conference (MSC) “Co-creating Agendas for Culture in Europe. Memory, Inclusion, Creativity” was hold in Barcelona (Spain) on 11-13 May, 2016 in the framework of the CulturalBase project, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program.

The Major Stakeholder Conference (MSC) “Co-creating Agendas for Culture in Europe. Memory, Inclusion, Creativity” offered the opportunity to network and establish direct interaction between representatives of the academia and professionals in the cultural sector. To this end, specific small-group working sessions were organised to provide for in-depth discussions aiming at enabling to: take stock of what has been produced within the project also through the online debates on the CulturalBase website; generate a consensus for the profiling of the research agenda(s) & policy recommendations.
